There is no doubt in my mind that this is the turning-point time for me to make room for a successor to look well to the growing edge of this historic institution with a new strategic plan in mind to move the university to another fertile plateau, Carter wrote in a letter to alumni Monday. JCSU moved its footprint beyond the Beatties Ford Road campus with its partnership in Mosaic Village, a student housing complex, as well as the Arts Factory, a facility for visual, communication and performing arts that opened in 2010. The facilities helped spark long-term investments in the Beatties Ford Road Corridor, which has historically lagged in business and housing development.
