Communication from the Board of Trustees of SC State University

Tuesday, December 11, 2007

At the conclusion of a 5 p.m. telephone conference meeting (December 11, 2007) SC State University’s Board of Trustees decided not to renew the contract of the current president, Dr. Andrew Hugine.

The Board’s decision is based on Dr. Hugine’s most recent annual performance evaluation (2006-2007) as well as an academic review of the University administered by the Education Commission of the States dated May 29, 2007.

Both of these documents are a matter of public record. The Board of Trustees will name an interim president in the very near future. The SC State Board of Trustees will immediately begin a national search for new leadership.
