    Don't sweat the haters! People try to take any chance to bring you down, we have had a lot of haters on the board this last few months :(

    rented space

    Exactly. It's just rented space. Any depressed city in American has abandoned banks with marble floors for rent, cheap.

    The quality of a university is not determined by the floor material but rather the quality of the faculty. Who is on the faculty at "CCU"?

    Not surprisingly, both the web site and the catalog don't list the names or qualifications of a single faculty member.

    Everyone knows why.

    Funny, I clicked the "catalog" link at the bottom of the CCU home page and was taken to a page where I could access the current catalog. Here is the direct link:

    The academic credentials for the deans begin on page 10 and the faculty on page 13. They appear to be adequately qualified. Interestingly, only one has a terminal degree from CCU, the others are all RA.

    Boy, you just dig your hole deeper and deeper. He he he! Perhaps you should take a reading class?

    Oh I see. It is useless because the grand NorCal says it is useless? Are you calling me a liar?

    Yes, those pictures are from when they first bought the building. Trees have been cut back, and a photographer will have to take more panoramic pictures to show the entire length of the building. Certain trees and the such made it impossible to get a good shot.

    For my own purposes, I would rather wait until all the signage is up. Why? Naysayers will promptly say "Gee, CCU has no signs!" Must be degree envy or something! :) Do I really care about the naysayers? Not really. I have no time to waste on negative energy. I am too busy enjoying life.

    Please take the tour when you come out to SoCal Dr. Pina. You can personally see what I am talking about. The very well qualified faculty/Professors all have physical offices at this campus, and you can speak to each one if you wish. Plus, you can check out the 4 volume dissertation I mentioned earlier.

    Have a good day Dr. Pina!

    Abner :)

    faculty at CCU

    I did not see the faculty because they are not in the back of the catalog, which is where they appear in every other catalog. I apologize for that mistake.

    However, just as indicative of the low quality of CCU There are only SIXTEEN faculty members. Since they offer TWENTY-FOUR different degrees and hundreds of courses, those poor 16 are spread very thinly.

    An institution with only 16 faculty isn't a university, it's a bad joke.

    So you've seen their entire staff listing, including adjuncts?

    I think you're rushing to judgment based on a fairly minimal set of facts.

    Duh Abner.


    The Grand NorCal just wanted to see some recent pics, lol.

    I'm citing the "University's" own web site. SIXTEEN FACULTY! It's a pathetic joke. Adjuncts do not a university make. My college (which offers only the BA) has 18 faculty in the political science department ALONE.

    Dear Warguns.....

    Let me say...I feel your pain. It's like being a kid again. "Well, mine is better than yours." Well, maybe....

    "Don't be a dick" is the fundamental rule of social spaces. Although nobody is empowered to ban or block somebody for dickery, it is still a bad idea to be a dick.

    "Coping with accusations of dickery"
    "If you have been labeled as a dick, especially if you have been told this by several people in a particular community, it might be wise to consider the possibility that the accusations hold at least some measure of truth. If you suspect that you have a problem with dickery, the first step is to be aware of it.

    "How to deal with dicks without being a dick yourself"
    Telling someone "Don't be a dick" is usually a dick-move, especially if it is true. So, I am going to focus on behavior not the individual.

    "You are not behaving very well."

    See seems your goal is to hurt not help. Your school might have 18 faculty members in your political science department but that's form B&M based students I'm sure. DL students do not need that as they are their own teachers most of the time.

    I don't understand why you state this. A place that calls itself a university that has only SIXTEEN faculty is not really a university. That's the reality.

    The poster pointed out to me where in the California Coast University catalog where I could find the faculty. I counted them. SIXTEEN. And they offer doctorates!

    I'm afraid it shows how low DETC has sunk and that DETC accreditation really has no credibility any longer.

    My goal is to inform. Did you know California Coast University had only a handful of faculty?

    My other to express my opinion that a "university" that offers doctorates that has only 16 faculty is not really a university, it's a device for extracting money from the credulous. California Coast University may have rented a fancy former bank building but it's the same old shame.

    I am not going to disagree with you....

    It was not important to me to know the number of faculty members. My goal was to learn.

    By the way, I have a BS from California Coast University.
