    INSTITUTION:
    Limestone College has been a pioneer in providing access to higher education. In 1845, when higher education was only a dream for many young women, Limestone was founded as the first women’s college in South Carolina and one of the first in the US. It is the third-oldest college in South Carolina. In the early 1900s, when young men from the local area sought higher education, but could not afford to attend distant universities, Limestone admitted men as commuting students. In the 1960s, Limestone became fully coeducational. In the 1970s, when many institutions had no interest in educating working adults, Limestone established the Block Program, one of the pioneer programs for non-traditional students. The Block Program allowed students to complete their bachelor’s degrees entirely through evening classes, using a one-course-at-a-time accelerated format. In the mid-1990s, through the establishment of the Virtual Campus, Limestone emerged as a national leader in applying computer technology to teach students who could not utilize traditional classroom settings. In 2005, the Block Program and the Virtual Campus were combined into the Extended Campus Program and in 2018, the program was renamed the Online & Evening Program. Providing higher education access to those needing it the most has been a proud theme throughout the history of Limestone College. Looking forward, Limestone recently unveiled plans for a new “Global Experience” that will send undergraduate Day Campus students to study around the world, starting with the 2019-2020 academic year.

    Today, Limestone is an accredited, independent, coeducational, residential, four-year liberal arts institution, and a non-denominational Christian college. With over 3,000 students, Limestone is one of the three largest private accredited colleges in South Carolina. The main campus is located in Gaffney, in the Piedmont region of the state. Gaffney is within an hour’s drive of the Greenville/ Spartanburg and Charlotte metropolitan areas. Limestone also offers its Evening Program at six sites throughout South Carolina. Today, Limestone is truly a statewide college and its Online Program makes the College truly a worldwide institution.

    The mission of Limestone is to educate students from diverse backgrounds in the liberal arts and selected professional disciplines. By providing degree programs throughout the state and online, the College offers opportunities for personal and professional growth to individuals who may find access to higher education difficult. In a nurturing, supportive environment based on Christian ideals and ethical principles, students are challenged to become critical thinkers and effective communicators who are prepared for responsible citizenship, successful careers, and graduate study. As such, the College's faculty and staff, academic and co-curricular programs, financial resources, and support services are dedicated to an educational climate that upholds high academic standards and fosters respect for learning and beauty, creativity and hard work, tolerance and personal integrity, vigorous activity, and spiritual reflection.

    POSITION DESCRIPTION: Vice President for Finance and Administration
