New Certificate: Information and Technology

Become career ready in a fast-growing field by earning an IT certificate. Complete four courses which prepare you to test for the global IT certifications of CompTIA A+1, 2 and Networking PLUS. Dr. David Ober, chair of the Business Department, says, “These certifications have tremendous industry respect and generate substantial income opportunities.” This certificate is open to all; students can add the courses to any major, and adult learners can pursue the certificate independent from earning a full degree. Ober sees it as a beneficial skill set for those in a variety of careers, explaining, “The IT certification provides ministry-first minded students a ‘tent-making’ career to allow for tremendous impact for Christ.” Find more about the Information and Technology Certificate.

Ted Boykin named Vice President for Student Development

CSU has selected Boykin for this role after he served as interim dean of students since the start of 2021.

Boykin will observe his 30th full year of teaching at CSU this year. He has served with the Office of Student Development for decades and is the longest serving resident director on campus, seeing more than 800 students come through his residence hall.

Referencing Boykin’s degrees in counseling and theology paired with extensive experience and heart for discipleship, Dr. Jim Lytle, president, said, “This is a powerful combination for the sort of student development that CSU needs in the years ahead.”
