The Citadel

Founded in 1842, The Citadel is located in the historic city of Charleston, South Carolina, and is a unit of the South Carolina Commission on Higher Education. The Citadel has a rich history of academic excellence and an enduring legacy of developing principled leaders.

The Citadel leads South Carolina public colleges and universities in its four-year graduation rate, including the highest four-year graduation rate for athletes.

Men and women from 44 states and a dozen countries are enrolled at The Citadel. The South Carolina Corps of Cadets has a student body of more than 2,300. More than 1,100 civilian students attend The Citadel Graduate College through evening undergraduate and graduate degree programs.

South Carolina Corps of Cadets

The cadets in the Corps live and study under a classical military system that makes leadership and character training an essential part of The Citadel's educational experience.

Historically, The Citadel's primary purpose has been to educate undergraduates through its Corps of Cadets and prepare them for postgraduate positions of leadership through academic programs of recognized excellence supported by the best features of a structured military environment. The cadet lifestyle provides an environment that supports the growth and development of character, physical fitness, and moral and spiritual principles.

All cadets participate in an ROTC program, requiring physical fitness training and military instruction in addition to their regular college classes. The disciplined lifestyle that begins in the first year binds cadets into a lifelong, close-knit camaraderie that is one of the strongest forces in their lives after graduation.

The Citadel's ROTC detachments are authorized to offer commissions in the Army, Air Force, or Navy/Marine Corps. While participation does not require students to accept a commission or to be committed to active military duty, one-third of the graduating cadets are typically commissioned into military service following graduation.

The Citadel Graduate College

Established in 1968, The Citadel Graduate College supports and encourages stronger economic development in the region by identifying and creating new programs to benefit the community. Because classes are offered in the evenings and online, the college excels in providing a quality education that is tailored around the students' professions, families, and lifestyles. Classes typically meet once per week in a civilian atmosphere.

Students can choose from more than 60 graduate and undergraduate degrees and certificates, with classes offered during the day, evening, or online.

Academic Programs

The mission of The Citadel is accomplished through five academic schools: Tommy and Victoria Baker School of Business; Zucker Family School of Education; School of Engineering; School of Humanities and Social Sciences; and Swain Family School of Science and Mathematics. The college has a wide range of baccalaureate degree programs (Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Science, Bachelor of Science in Business Administration, Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering, Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering, Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering, and Bachelor of Science in Nursing). The Graduate College offers nine master's degrees, a specialist degree in education, and certificates in 25 concentrations.

The institution's focus on high-impact practices including undergraduate research, study aboard, internships, and service learning, and emphasis on student mentoring and outstanding teaching have resulted in high graduation rates and strong alumni support.

The latest data show that 60 percent of entering freshmen graduate from The Citadel within four years. The national average four-year graduation rate is about 30 percent.

U.S. News and World Report has ranked The Citadel the No. 1 Public Regional University in the South for seven consecutive years (2012-2018) U.S. News and World Report ratings of Southern public colleges at the master's comprehensive level.

Additionally, U.S. News and World Report has ranked The Citadel's School of Engineering 19th among the nation's Undergraduate Engineering Programs (at schools without a doctoral program).

Some of the world's most prestigious organizations have recognized the academic excellence of students at The Citadel. Fourteen cadets have received Fulbright Scholarships to study abroad since 1992. Three cadets have received Truman Scholarships since 1997.

The Krause Center for Leadership and Ethics

The Krause Center for Leadership and Ethics focuses on enhancing leadership development and ethical growth at The Citadel. As a graduation requirement, all members of the Corps of Cadets complete four years of leadership courses provided through the center. The coursework, programs, and activities are designed to strengthen The Citadel's preparation of principled leaders.

Athletics

A member of the NCAA Division I Southern Conference, The Citadel fields 16 intercollegiate teams (7 women's, 9 men's). Historically, the athletic teams have shined in the classroom. A total of 174 cadet-athletes were named to the 2016-17 Southern Conference Academic Honor Roll, a distinction earned by having a 3.00 grade-point average or higher during the school year. Forty Bulldogs earned the Commissioner's Medal for completing the academic year with a grade-point average of 3.8 or higher.

Additional information on The Citadel is available at http://www.citadel.edu/root/provost-search

Charleston, South Carolina

The oldest city in South Carolina, Charleston respects the past through its preservation of its more than 300-year history, yet embraces the future with strong economic development. The city offers a rich history and culture, and beautiful beaches. With its waterfront parks, historic homes and churches, and wide variety of entertainment and shopping offerings, Charleston provides a high quality of life accented with true Southern hospitality.

Charleston is located on the Atlantic coast midway between Hilton Head and Myrtle Beach. The city is easily accessible from several interstate highways and the Charleston International airport.

The weather is one of Charleston's irresistible qualities. The city's average high temperature of 74 degrees and the average low of 60 enable the 712,000 metropolitan area residents to enjoy outdoor activities year-around.

The Citadel is an AA/EO employer.

Candidacies of women and minorities are strongly encouraged.
