Coastal Compass welcomes University of the Incarnate Word

Posted: Updated:

Coastal Compass Education and Career Resource Center at La Palmera Mall is welcoming University of the Incarnate Word as their newest partner in a ceremony on Wednesday, August 2, at 10:30 a.m. at Coastal Compass, La Palmera Mall.  

As a Coastal Compass partner, a UIW advisor will be available on a regular basis.

University of the Incarnate Word-Corpus Christi, located at 5350 S. Staples, Suite 300, provides educational opportunities for adults wanting to earn a college degree. 

Both undergraduate and graduate degrees are offered in a non-traditional format.  The undergraduate program encourages students to attend two courses every 8-week term.  This pace allows students to earn 36 credits per year, accelerating their time to graduation.  

Classes are also available 100% online for students who need extra flexibility in their class schedule.  Professional development opportunities for adults needing continuing education and/or who want to earn a certificate to reach their career goals are also available.  

Citizens for Educational Excellence, a 501(c)(3) local education organization, established Coastal Compass in partnership with Corpus Christi ISD, Corpus Christi Literacy Council, Craft Training Center, Del Mar College, Education to Employment Partners, Education Service Center Region 2, Saint Leo University, Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi, Texas A&M University-Kingsville, and Workforce Solutions of the Coastal Bend.  

The comprehensive, one-stop resource center offers individuals free information on all types of educational and career development programs with the goal of preparing Coastal Bend residents with the education and skills necessary for the region's jobs.  For more information about UIW or any other programs, contact Coastal Compass at 361-906-0703 or victoria@coastalcompass.org.
