The Citadel in the News

1. Citadel athletics facilities plan projected to cost $33 million
A master plan for Citadel athletics facilities approved by the Board of Visitors calls for more than $33 million in improvements and new buildings. The BOV voted in April to include the athletics facilities master plan in the existing campus master plan. The athletics facilities plan includes a new $28.9 million, 95,000-square foot building that would house Citadel athletics, as well as upgrades to McAlister Field House and the Bulldogs' track and football practice facility. Citadel athletic director Jim Senter said Wednesday that the plan represents the athletic department "getting its ducks in a row" for when the time is right to begin a fund-raising campaign. "The college has a facilities master plan, and they asked us what we wanted to do," Senter said. "So we needed to do a study to find out what we have in comparison to our peers." The Citadel contracted with a private firm to study venues and facilities at "peer institutions" such as Mercer, Furman, Western Carolina and VMI, all members of the Southern Conference along with The Citadel. The study found that The Citadel has a "programmatic facility shortfall" of about 52,000 square feet, including the areas of academic enhancement, sports medicine, coaches' offices, administration and practice facilities.

2. Learning the ins and outs of national education policy making
A group of educators from The Citadel's Zucker Family School of Education is more knowledgeable about the U.S. educational policy making process after a recent trip to Washington, D.C. Two members of The Citadel Class of 2016, James McManus (Bachelor of Science in Social Studies Education) and Jennifer Clark Bucciarelli (Masters of Arts in Teaching, Mathematics Education), were part of a larger South Carolina delegation participating in a "Day on the Hill," sponsored by the American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education (AACTE). The two students, who are also teachers, learned about educational policy from Washington experts and participated in visits to the offices of South Carolina's members of Congress. AACTE holds the event annually to assist teacher education faculty and students who wish to become involved in educational policy creation. The Dean of the Zucker Family School of Education, Larry G. Daniel, and Citadel Professor Stephenie Hewett also attended the D.C. event. "AACTE's Day on the Hill is a premier event within the profession of teacher education. It builds camaraderie among teacher educators, education students, and individuals involved in the making and interpretation of educational policy," said Daniel, who has attended the last 12 years. "I am pleased we can help our faculty and students in education learn about the importance of their involvement in the democratic process."
