Muller is a seasoned executive with 21 years of experience in the healthcare sector. Her career focus has included the development of public education programs in women’s health, healthcare strategy, and patient advocacy.

Grace & Co. in international sales, marketing management, and corporate finance.
“Nancy brings a proven aptitude for strategic planning, non-profit management and building collaborative partnerships. It was these skills that identified her as the right person to lead the Lowcountry Graduate Center into the future,” explained George Hynd, Provost for the College of Charleston and Chair of the LGC Board of Directors.
Muller will be responsible for assessing the educational needs of regional employers and launching new graduate programs in the Lowcountry aimed at advancing knowledge workers
in their careers.
“I am honored to have the opportunity to work with our state’s top public universities to expand opportunities for graduate education in the Charleston region,” said Muller.
“Finding and retaining high quality talent is a top concern for our region’s employers,” stated Bryan Derreberry, President and CEO for the Charleston Metro Chamber of Commerce. “The Lowcountry Graduate is a great example of a collaborative higher education model that works to help meet the graduate education needs in our community.”
The Lowcountry Graduate Center was created in 2001 through a partnership of the College of Charleston, The Citadel and the Medical University of South Carolina. These founding institutions, along with the University of South Carolina, now offer almost a dozen Ph.D., master’s and graduate certificate programs at the Lowcountry Graduate Center.
