Letter from the Chair of the Board of Trustees
To Members of the University of South Carolina System Community:
It is an honor and a privilege to Chair the University of South Carolina Board of
Trustees. My fellow Trustees and I govern the University System through development
of goals, plans, and policies. We delegate day-to-day authority for management of
the University to Dr. Michael Amiridis, the University’s 30th President.
The University System has many stakeholders, including students, faculty, staff, parents,
and alumni. More numerous than these stakeholders are other South Carolinians who
benefit from the University, its work, its activities, and its discoveries: attendees
at intercollegiate sporting events and cultural programming, patients of University
graduates who serve as doctors and nurses, business owners who prosper from the expenditures
of students and visitors, etc.
The Board’s duties are to preserve the University so that it might educate future
generations of students and so that stakeholders and the public might appreciate the
University’s vital role in the State, in perpetuity. Thank you for your trust in the
Board as it fulfills these duties. Please partner with the Board and the University
through constructive engagement.
The University is beginning new phases of aspiration and action. The decades ahead
promise tremendous advancements in the University’s programming and facilities for
the health sciences, continuing excellence in the Darla Moore School of Business and
University-wide support of the first-year experience, and the benefits generated by
the University that touch us every day but that we should never take for granted.
Forever To Thee,
Thad H. Westbrook
