Four finalists announced in search for next UofSC president
The University of South Carolina’s presidential search committee announced four finalists Wednesday, one of which will serve as the 29th leader of the university. The search for a successor to current President Harris Pastides began in November. Pastides has served as UofSC’s president for 10 years.
The school’s presidential search is led by an 11-member committee comprised of several members of the university’s Board of Trustees as well as the chair of the Faculty Senate, two professors, the student body president, president of the My Carolina Alumni Association and a member of the University Foundations board. Parker Executive Search, a global executive search firm based in Atlanta, assisted with identifying top candidates.
The finalists are scheduled to visit the Columbia campus April 22 through 25 for a series of meetings with students, faculty, staff, and community leaders.
All four finalists all currently serve in positions at universities out-of-state:
