My daily post theme for 2017 is on Colleges and Universities.
The plan for starting my blog back in 2014 was at the urging of fellow coaching colleagues to share posts on leadership and/or motivation. Somehow that idea got derailed and turned into daily posts on one theme for an entire year.
In 2014 my daily posts were on the “Beer of the Day”, 2015 it was “A Friend of a Friend”, 2016 I wrote about “North Carolina”, and for 2017 I will focus on “Colleges and Universities”.
I have been associated with colleges since I was 18 and I love them. I have coached/worked at four different universities and in my professional and personal travels visited 100’s more. Each college has something in its history that I want to share that to me make it unique or personal.

Name of University: Anderson University
Location: Anderson SC
Today at UNC Pembroke we are going to participate in a county wide Emergency Preparedness Drill. I got wondering what colleges have the best Emergency Management Degree programs.
Emergency management degree programs are becoming more available in universities and schools across the United States. You can now find programs for homeland security degrees and emergency management certificate programs as well, including undergraduate and graduate degree options. Many of these programs have just evolved over the past decade.
One university in South Carolina Anderson University in Anderson SC offers the degree.
Anderson University traces its origins back to 1911, when it was chartered as a four-year college for women. With a donation of land and money from area citizens, the South Carolina Baptist Convention agreed to partner with those who wanted an institution of higher learning in Anderson, and the school opened its doors in 1912.
Many campuses today offer a degree or certificate in Emergency Management but a large number are online. Anderson offers theirs on campus.
The Bachelor of Emergency Services Management at Anderson is designed to provide graduates with the knowledge and skills needed to perform professionally in the role of an emergency services organization or agency manager and learner.
