Weather Update: UofSC Columbia campus will be closed Friday, Sept. 30 due to inclement weather. Classes are canceled and only essential personnel are required to report to campus. See sc.edu/weather for updates.
The Board of Visitors of the University of South Carolina Palmetto College is an active
group of volunteers from all over the state and southeast who assist the Chancellor
and campus deans in a range of activities that help advance the mission and vision
of USC Palmetto College. Board members’ activities support and advise public relations,
government relations and fund raising. Most importantly, board members serve as ambassadors,
informing members of their respective communities about happenings at and for the
four Palmetto Colleges (USC Lancaster, USC Salkehatchie, USC Sumter), affiliated sites
(Fort Jackson, Indian Land, Laurens, Shaw Air Force Base) and bachelor’s degree completion
programs representing the three universities (USC Aiken, USC Beaufort, USC Upstate)
and the Research I university (USC Columbia). In turn, board members also keep the
USC system administration informed about what they are hearing about USC Palmetto
College and the Palmetto College Campuses in their communities.
The Palmetto College Board of Visitors shall be composed of a demographically representative
group of no more than twenty (20) members. Members shall be selected from alumni of
Palmetto College, state and local officials, community-at-large, and friends of Palmetto
College who have demonstrated a consistent interest in the success of Palmetto College
and the University of South Carolina.
