Other prominent 2022 rankings earned for innovation, best for veterans, best value and engineering

The Citadel is the U.S. News and World Report #1 Top Public College in the South for the 11th successive year. The ranking, for institutions offering up to a master’s degree, is part of the digital media company’s new, 2022 college rankings released Sept. 13, 2021.

“This is not an easy feat, but The Citadel is resolute about providing a transformational experience for cadets that cultivates long-term dividends,“ said The Citadel President Gen. Glenn M. Walters, USMC (Ret.), Class of 1979. “Earning the ranking of #1 Top Public College in the South from U.S. News & World Report one time, let alone 11 times, is only possible because of the passion and commitment of everyone on campus and our steadfast alumni.”

The South Carolina Corps of Cadets military review parade on Sept. 3, 2021 on Summerall Field on campus in Charleston, South Carolina.

The Citadel’s most prominent rankings on the U.S. News & World Report 2022 Best Colleges lists include:

· #1 Top Public College, Regional Universities (South); #2 overall including private

· #1 Best College for Veterans, Regional Universities (South)

· #6 Best Undergraduate Teaching, Regional Universities (South)

· #10 Most Innovative Schools, Regional Universities (South)

· #16 Best Undergraduate Engineering Programs, nationwide (non-doctoral)

· #21 Best Value, Regional Universities (South)

“The Citadel is simply the best choice for people willing to take on exceptional challenges in college that will lead to exceptional results in life,” said the Regimental Commander of the South Carolina Corps of Cadets, Cadet Col. Kathryn Christmas. “Being ranked the top public college in the South year after year by U.S. News & World Report helps validate the value of a Citadel experience for those who may not yet know about the benefits within the Corps.”

Christmas, who is from Easley, South Carolina, explained that The Citadel education begins with Four Pillars – character, academics, military and fitness. “Developing the whole person makes our graduates strong and ready to lead no matter where they go.”

U.S. News & World Report was one of the first American publishers to produce a college rankings list based on a complex formula of publicly reported data that is submitted to the U.S. Department of Education annually by all institutions of higher education.

But it's also the first 9/11 that we don't have troops in Afghanistan."]]>

The South Carolina Corps of Cadets and other members of The Citadel family are taking part in numerous events and activities to honor the lives of Americans lost on September 11, 2001.

One of those Americans was Joseph John Pycior, Jr. who was killed while working at the Pentagon on 9/11. Pycior was a member of The Citadel Class of 1984 and his name is engraved on The Citadel War Memorial. In releasing the names of the missing in the fall of 2001, the Defense Department listed Pycior’s title as Aviation Warfare Systems Operator 1st Class. 

Pycior was a son, a husband to Terri Pycior, and father to two sons, John, III and Robert Adam at the time of his death. He served in the U.S. Navy on numerous ships, including the including the U.S.S. George Washington and U.S.S. Seattle. During Desert Storm, he was stationed in the Persian Gulf. He began working at the Pentagon in 1999, according to reports.

Here are some of the ways The Citadel will remember.

9/11 Memorial 110-flight Stair Climb by Sierra Company cadets

On September 8, Sierra Company cadets hosted a group stair climb to mark the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 attack and also to recognize the sacrifices American troops made in Afghanistan.

  • Sierra Company cadets host a group stair climb to mark the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 attack and also to recognize the sacrifices American troops made in Afghanistan at Stevens Barracks in Charleston, South Carolina on Wednesday, September 8, 2021. The cadets, the Commandant of Cadets, the college chaplain and other members of the commandant’s team climbed 110 flights of stairs in unison.

The cadets, the Commandant of Cadets, the college chaplain and other members of the commandant’s team climbed 110 flights of stairs in unison in Stevens Barrack.

The climb was similar to what the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation supports, with firefighters in full gear climbing stairs in stadiums and buildings around America each 9/11 anniversary. The 110 flights represent the 110 floors of the Twin Towers.

“I think it’s important to honor the men, women and children who lost their lives that day, whether they were civilians or emergency responders. But it’s also the first 9/11 that we don’t have troops in Afghanistan. Honoring those who made the ultimate sacrifice there to defend the freedoms we have today is also very important. Climbing stairs is the least we can do.”

Cadet Captain Jaret S. Price, Sierra Company Commander

“America’s critical infrastructure must be protected”

Photo above: Citadel cadets competing in cybersecurity simulations challenge on campus in 2021

The Citadel — as a Department of Defense National Center of Excellence in Cyber Defense (NCAE-C), recently re-designated through 2028 — is working with a collaborative group to improve the nation’s cybersecurity infrastructure.

According to the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Department of Homeland Security, critical infrastructure control systems such as water, electricity, gas and traffic systems have become key targets for adversarial attacks from organized threat actors. This project is intended to help address that.

The University of Memphis Center for Information Assurance (CfIA) is leading the effort, having formed a consortium of NCAE-C institutions including The Citadel, North Carolina A&T State University and the University of West Florida to apply for and secure the grant. The overall goal is to design and develop a multi-disciplinary critical infrastructure cybersecurity program addressing the technical needs of public utility operations and emergency decision-makers. 

“Cyber attacks in South Carolina are becoming more and more common, just as they are across the country,” said Shanknar Banik, Ph.D., the founder of The Citadel’s cyber initiatives and head of all related entities. “America’s critical infrastructure must be protected.”

For example, in 2020 news outlets report that Greenville Water and the Bluffton Township Fire District were attacked, and Georgetown County was hit with a ransomware attack in 2021. A company called Seculore Solutions lists a state-by-state archive of infrastructure related cybersecurity attacks for each state, including South Carolina, here.

Banik, and Melissa Graves, Ph.D., a professor in the Department of Intelligence and Security Studies, are The Citadel’s primary investigators on the CfIA led project.

The consortium intends to create a strong southeast regional coalition, leveraging the group’s expertise in cybersecurity to assist NCAE-C cadets and students, state and local governments, and critical infrastructure industry partners in contending with evolving threats. 

The matrix of cybersecurity and intelligence programs at The Citadel

The first cohort of cadets studying as part of The Citadel Department of Defense Cyber Institute pose for a portrait on campus in Charleston, South Carolina, in March 2021.

The matrix of elements that are part of The Citadel’s Cyber and Computer Sciences programs include The Citadel Department of Defense Cyber Institute (CDCI). It is funded by DoD grants, the last one in the amount of $1.46 million, provided through legislation that created a similar entity at each of the nation’s six Senior Military Institutes. Thus far 19 cadets are studying under the umbrella of the CDCI.

“The Citadel Department of Defense Cyber Institute exists because there is a critical shortage of qualified cyber professionals within the Department of Defense, in both the military and civilian service areas,” added Banik.

Additionally, The Citadel’s CyberCorps program — funded through a $2.8 million National Science Foundation grant — provides tuition, living expenses and dedicated training for cadets who will immediately go into cybersecurity government roles after graduation.

The Citadel offers undergraduate degrees in Cyber Operations, Computer Science, and Intelligence and Security Studies, plus two related master’s degrees and several graduate certificates. For more information email admissions@Citadel.edu.

The Citadel Distinguished Scholars Program is proud to announce its third group of cadets.

Nine additional cadets are now in the program. All but one will graduate in 2024. The eight sophomores and one junior were recently selected following their successful applications and interviews.

The new Distinguished Scholars are:

Leo Ernesto Bachir Eckhardt
Major: Intelligence and Security Studies; Social Studies Education; Criminal Justice.
Hometown: Vienna, Austria

Joshua Howell
Major: Criminal Justice
Hometown: Holly Lake Ranch, Texas

Thomas Grealy (Marine scholarship)
Major: Finance
Hometown: South Boston, Massachusetts

Richard Milling
Major: Civil Engineering
Hometown: Florence, South Carolina

Riley Neiders (Air Force scholarship, Rifle Team)

Major: Finance
Hometown: Yorkville, Illinois

Joseph Stilwell (Army scholarship)
Major: English
Hometown: Greer, South Carolina

Mary Coastal Watkins
Major: Civil Engineering
Hometown: Sullivan’s Island, South Carolina

The Citadel Distinguished Scholars Program began in 2019 to provide preparation for select cadets that should improve their chances for acceptance to elite graduate schools or selection for the highest level of scholarships.

“The Citadel Distinguished Scholars Program attracts strikingly motivated students who already have a highly developed sense of personal mission and purpose,” said Earl Walker, Ph.D., a professor of management and leadership at The Citadel who created the program. 

More about The Citadel Distinguished Scholars Program

There are 20 cadets in the program with the three cohorts of scholars. Four cadets from the inaugural group are preparing to graduate in May 2022.

“Our scholars are pursuing multiple majors and minors, some hold rank and added responsibility in the Corps, some are planning to commission into the armed forces, while others have a passion driving their ambition to seek greater challenges,” Walker added. “All are benefiting from our training them to be leaders in their field and giving them an edge to compete for life-changing, graduate-level educational opportunities.”

Walker explained that the scholars are inspired and encouraged to “up their game” and set their ambitions high. “By their senior year, they will have their sights set on applying for the most important and most highly sought after scholarships, like the Rhodes or Fulbright,” he said.

The scholars sign a contract agreeing to maintain a 3.75 GPA, are assigned faculty mentors and take one-on-one tutorials. The main structural element of the program are the tutorials in classical disciplines including Economics, English and Political Science. A new fourth class focuses on self-assessment and personal development to help scholars create compelling personal narratives that will make their applications stand out. In the tutorials, scholars read leading works and meet one-on-one with professors to discuss and interpret, then write and defend, persuasive papers. 

“To compete successfully, our scholars must possess spotless academic transcripts, demonstrate leadership, research and innovation in their field, civic awareness and social responsibility, and valuable skills gained through internships, service and employment experiences,” said Walker. “Our scholars have full access to five professors and 20 advisory board members to help them find the intersection of their interests, their passions and their skills.”

For more information about the program please email earl.walker@citadel.edu, or vperez@citadel.edu. The office phone number is (843) 953-9507. 

Aim high and go big are the hallmarks of The Citadel Distinguished Scholars Program.

Swain Boating Center
Closed to the public; open to media

The Citadel Department of Public Safety will be conducting a promotion ceremony for two of its staff members.

Brisbane has been with the department for three years, and is a four-year veteran of the Marine Corps. Shaffer has been with the department for nearly two years; prior to his time in Public Safety, he served as an armorer with the Commandant’s Office starting in 2016 and is a 20-year veteran of the U.S. Air Force.

First military dress parade of the year

Friday, Sept. 3
3:45 p.m.
Summerall Field, The Citadel campus
Free, open to the public

Review parade held on March 6, 2020, prior to the hiatus due to the pandemic

After a year-long hiatus due to the pandemic, The Citadel will hold its first military dress parade on Friday, Sept. 3 at 3:45 p.m.

During the parade, the winners of the President’s and Summerall Cup will be announced.

  • The President’s Cup is awarded annually to the cadet company earning the highest overall score in the areas of academics, military bearing, physical effectiveness, freshman retention, Regimental Commander’s Bowl, and service learning. It is the highest honor that can be won by a cadet company.
  • The Charles P. Summerall Cup is presented annually by the Provost of the College to the cadet company with the highest grade point average as calculated from all classes of cadets assigned for the fall and spring semesters of the previous school year. This is the top unit academic award and is one of the criteria for the President’s Cup.

The tradition of parading troops can be traced back to the time of Alexander the Great, and the South Carolina Corps of Cadets’ Friday afternoon dress parades reflect those drill procedures and movements of the past.

Modern day dress parades are conducted to inspect troops, render honors, preserve tradition and foster espirit de corps. At various times throughout the year, parades are also used to present awards and recognize students, faculty, staff and other notable figures.

For more information, or to view the fall 2021 parade schedule, please visit the Parade Schedule webpage.

Constitution Day recognition events scheduled at The Citadel Sept. 21 and 23, open to public

Every cadet at The Citadel is required to take a course to learn more about America’s founding documents. They take it during their sophomore year, and it is an element of the Corps of Cadets’ requisite four years of leadership training that complements their academic and military training.

The chair of The Citadel Leadership Studies program, Faith Rivers James, JD, developed the course that began in the spring of 2020.

“Our concern is preparing cadets for future leadership roles by providing them with the knowledge needed to make an informed decision about their role in Democracy,” said Rivers James. “We examine the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution, of course. We also study advocacy pieces about the documents like the Federalist Papers.”

With national Constitution Day approaching (Sept. 17), the college continues to reinforce the importance of constitutional learning. The Citadel School of Humanities and Social Sciences is sponsoring two events. Both are free and open to everyone, facemasks required.

The first is at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 21. It will be a public reading of the Constitution involving volunteers from across campus and the community. Those wishing to volunteer should contact Professor Scott Segrest at ssegrest@citadel.edu. It will be followed by a discussion led by a professor of Political Science.

The event will take place in Bond Hall, 165. There is free parking on campus. A virtual campus map is here.

The second event, from 7- 9 p.m. on Sept. 23, will feature a constitutional expert, Prof. Richard Garnett, JD. He is the Paul J. Schierl/Fort Howard Corporation Professor of Law and Concurrent Professor of Political Science at the University of Notre Dame, where he is also the founding director of the Program on Church, State & Society. 

“We can all learn from Prof. Garnett’s expertise on First Amendment issues, especially on the freedoms of speech, association and religion. Additionally, he is a leading authority on questions of religion in politics and society,” said Scott Segrest, Ph.D., assistant professor of Political Science at The Citadel. “Professor Garnett earned his J.D. from Yale Law School and clerked for the late Chief Justice of the United States, William H. Rehnquist, and also for the late Chief Judge of the S.S. Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit, Richard S. Arnold.”

The event on Sept. 23 will be held in the Altman Center, which is the building at the end of the football stadium facing Fishburne St. The address is 68C Hagood Ave., and there is complimentary parking just outside of the building.

Both of the events are sponsored by the School of Humanities with generous support from the Henry and Jenny Johnson Endowment for Historical Studies.

The Citadel temporarily requiring masks indoors https://today.citadel.edu/the-citadel-temporarily-requiring-masks-indoors/ Tue, 24 Aug 2021 21:05:17 +0000 https://today.citadel.edu/?p=26103 Based on current conditions, The Citadel will temporarily require face coverings to be worn while inside select campus buildings.]]>

The modified mask policy is effective starting Aug. 25

Based on current conditions, The Citadel will require face coverings to be worn while inside select campus buildings. This protocol is temporary and will be reviewed on Sept. 7.

This applies to all individuals – cadets, students, faculty, staff and visitors – regardless of vaccination status in the following locations:

  • All academic buildings and classrooms
  • Additional buildings that require masks are:
    • Mark Clark Hall
    • Summerall Chapel
    • Daniel Library

Masks are not required outdoors, in barracks or in any facility not described above.

Supervisors are authorized to utilize discretion to require their employees to wear masks in close contact or indoor settings.

In order to achieve the goal of normal operations, The Citadel is seeking 85% immunity campus-wide.

These temporary measures and an increase in campus-wide vaccination rates will help the college achieve the objective of normal operations.

Those who have already been vaccinated and not yet reported their status are asked to report your vaccination status via an e-form here or through Banner here. This information will remain confidential and will only be shared with college officials who have a legitimate need to fulfill their professional responsibilities for The Citadel, such as contact-tracing.

Campus COVID statistics, as well as further guidance and protocols, can be found here.
