Strategic Plan

Focus Carolina is the University of South Carolina's strategic plan that provides a blueprint for key decision making in the next decade and beyond.

Focus Carolina articulates the university's quest for educational quality, leadership, innovation, diversity, access, global competition and community engagement at all eight campuses of the university system.

Areas in which the university is investing significant resources include aerospace science and engineering; biotherapeutics and health sciences; sustainable fuels, materials science, composites technology and nanotechnology; sustainability and the environment; K-12 education; rule of law; arts and humanities; and the social sciences.

Other goals include improvement of student retention and on-time graduation, increasing access to baccalaureate degrees through USC's regional campuses, and further engagement with communities.

The complete strategic plan and a digest of the strategic plan are both available as PDF files for download.
