Mungo Distinguished Professor of the Year: Cliff Leaman

Clifford Leaman's love of teaching and performing is obvious to Leaman’s students and colleagues, who describe him as a master performer and teacher. This year, the university presented Leaman, who has taught saxophone at Carolina for the past 17 years, with its highest teaching honor: the Michael J. Mungo Distinguished Professor of the Year Award.

Top scholars to join incoming UofSC freshman class

The University of South Carolina will welcome some of the nation’s and the state’s top students for the university’s most valuable and prestigious scholarships program. Recipients of the Stamps, Carolina and Hamilton scholar awards for in-state students and the Stamps, McNair and Horseshoe Scholar awards for out-of-state students will join the Carolina community in August.

A shadow 60 miles wide and zooming 1,000 mph is headed for the U.S. — and the University of South Carolina is ready to welcome it.

Einstein vs. Newton, revisited

A total solar eclipse – when the moon orbits directly in front of the sun – is the perfect time to test Einstein’s theory of general relativity. A University of South Carolina professor will do that in August, using modern technology, high-powered telescopes and cameras to record the sky over South Carolina.

If you build it, they will come

South Carolina’s tourism industry has seen rapid growth in the past 20 years. UofSC researchers want it to grow even more by appealing to African-American tourists and retirees.
