“Making college affordable for all students is critical to the goal of improving postsecondary degree attainment in the Upstate region. The result: Education for all that inspires a thriving and just society.”

Harris, Ph.D., has identified these three main priorities, highlighted here, that ensure USC Upstate is contributing to the vibrancy and prosperity of the Upstate for students and industry. Our commitment to meeting all learners where they are and elevating their aspirations, and our intentional efforts to build a human capital pipeline in support of Upstate businesses, have created a half-billion-dollar impact on the state of South Carolina. USC Upstate and its graduates are contributing to the national attention the region is experiencing.
