In the University of South Carolina (USC) System, each four-year senior campus is headed by a Chancellor. The University of South Carolina Organization Chart reflects the reporting structure of the Chancellors to the USC Board of Trustees (the Board) through the President.
The Bylaws of the Board, Article XI, Section 3 “Authority and Duties of the Chancellors” state that “The Chancellors shall be the chief administrative officers of their respective campuses and shall have full authority to administer campus affairs and to formulate and issue regulations and orders not inconsistent with the Bylaws, rules, policies and procedures of the Board and the President.” The Bylaws further state, “The Chancellors’ responsibilities include:
The Bylaws of the Board, Article V, Sections 1 and 2 state that the Ex Officio Chairman of the Board, the Governor of South Carolina, shall preside at all meetings of the Board when present. In the Governor’s absence, the permanent Chairman of the Board shall preside at all meetings of the Board. Should both the Ex Officio Chairman and the permanent Chairman both be absent, the Vice-Chairman shall preside. None of these positions may be held by a Chancellor within the USC System.
