Strategic Planning

In celebration of the 60th anniversary of impacting lives and the economy in Lancaster County and the region, University of South Carolina Lancaster (USCL) leaders embarked on a master plan update, building from the 2008 master plan. Since 2008, USCL constructed an iconic gateway sign on Highway 9, installed fencing, built Founders Hall, became a Palmetto Regional Campus with added academic programming, opened a satellite campus in Indian Land (the northern panhandle of Lancaster County), and elevated the collaborative four-year BSN program into one of the top nursing programs in the Carolinas. The university has a renewed vision for greater impact in the future. The vision for the next decade bloomed from numerous stakeholder meetings, particularly in discussions with Indian Land business leaders. The vision speaks to the possibilities, dreams and capacities of the university.
