The University completes comprehensive self-assessments as part of state-required accountability and reporting mandates. All of the University of South Carolina System Campuses provide an annual State Agency Accountability Report to the Governor’s Executive Budget Office. This report outlines the institution’s "mission", objectives to accomplish the mission, and performance measures that show the degree to which objectives are being "met" in accordance with the South Carolina provision 1-1-820.
The State Agency Accountability Report provides the Governor and the SC General Assembly with an overview and snapshot of the University's performance. The report also includes a discussion of prior year expenditures and associates those expenditures with prospective goals, strategies, and objectives to move the University forward in future years. The discussion and analysis section of the report provides University leadership with the opportunity to comment on internal and external factors affecting the University's performance in the past year, the University's current efforts and the associated results, and any plans under development to introduce additional changes.
In addition to being available on this site, these reports are available on the website of the South Carolina Executive Budget Office.
