In 1959, USC Lancaster was established in downtown Lancaster to serve the people in
six surrounding counties. As the oldest of the Palmetto Colleges, USC Lancaster remains
a devoted and purposeful institution of higher education for the citizens of this
state. In 2019-2020, we will pause on several occasions to remember our past—those
who served us, who served with us, and the accomplishments of both students and colleagues.
However, while certainly worthy of reflection and celebration, the history of the
campus and our accomplishments are not the sole focus this year. We are carefully
planning for a future that will include educating more students, increasing our outreach,
and collaborating with more partners for meaningful impact. Over the years, the campus
and student body have grown, but our mission remains the same…we’re devoted to preparing
students to continue their education in the University and throughout life. Check
back here often for updates to this year’s celebration events. Thank you for helping
us celebrate 60 years of education and service.
