In the African American Studies Program, you will use interdisciplinary tools and
resources to study the experiences of people of African descent and to evaluate historical,
cultural, social, economic and political developments in South Carolina, the South,
the United States, and beyond.
All individuals on campus are expected to wear a face covering whenever physical distancing
(six feet or more) is difficult or the risk of infection is high.
The university will provide a washable, reusable face covering for every student,
faculty and staff member.
The university will require face coverings in the following areas: Student Health Services, Thomas Cooper Library,
the Russell House and all classrooms.
Employees and students should carry a face covering of their choice on campus at all
times so as to be prepared for other environments where a face covering is required
(as designated by the university) or highly recommended.
University employees who cannot wear face coverings due to health conditions should
contact their supervisors.
Students with health conditions that make wearing a face covering risky should register
with the Student Disabilities Resource Center and accommodations will be made.
The University of South Carolina is working with the SC Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to actively monitor the novel coronavirus outbreak and any potential impact to our campus community.
