A-Team Reports
Dr. Robert Wyatt
— Dr. Wyatt discussed the PULSE Program and how it will help us with recruiting new students. Another great benefit of this program is that it will fund a Chinese professor for next year that will serve both Coker and the Governor’s School. Dr. Wyatt was also excited to announce that Coker College was recently named a College of Distinction. This online guide focuses on colleges and universities that appeal to students’ unique and varied interest. There are only two other colleges that are ranked in this state. The Board of Trustees will be on campus in two weeks. Staff item of interest that will be discussed will be compensation.
