This switch to university status is a reflection of the tremendous growth Coker has experienced in recent years, including the addition of graduate programs and online bachelor’s degrees. In that time, we have also been recognized in publications like US News & World Report for our innovative learning environment and a demonstrated commitment to undergraduate education. We have implemented new student resources like the AccessCoker technology initiative and Cobras in the Capital common experience trip. Our students participate in world-class performances, research, and study abroad experiences—and we regularly recruit international students, many of whom come from areas where the term “college” is used most frequently to describe a high school education. By becoming Coker University, the value of our degrees will be more clearly indicated to both international and domestic audiences, and the breadth of opportunities available to Coker students will be implied in our institutional name, rather than requiring further explanation.
Rest assured, a new title does not rewrite our story. This name change is just that—a change in name. The heart of Coker remains the same. We are, as always, a family.
The wellbeing and success of our students remains our top priority, and the crux of a Coker education still centers around personalized, discussion-based learning and the values of our student covenant: integrity, respect, scholarship, sustainability, service, and contribution.
We thank you for your feedback, your collaboration, and your cooperation as we navigate this transition over the next several months. Most of all, we thank you for being a part of our community and playing an invaluable role in our Coker story. We look forward to celebrating with you this summer, as we prepare to welcome the class of 2023 to Coker University!
