Gov McMaster could cost UofSuC accreditation

S.C. Gov. Henry McMaster’s involvement in the University of South Carolina’s presidential search could threaten the school’s accreditation, an official said Friday.

Accreditation matters because it provides legitimacy to a school’s programs and allows colleges to apply for federal funds.

The Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACS), which accredits USC, does not allow “external” forces to influence the school’s board of trustees. Although McMaster is, by law, ex officio chairman of the board, if he uses his powers of a governor, rather than his powers as a board member, to influence policy, it could threaten accreditation, association president Belle Wheelan said.

“While the governor is a member of the board, he has no more of a role than any other member of the board,” Wheelan said.
USC “may be out of compliance with standards,” Wheelan said.

Wheelan has reached out to USC President Harris Pastides, but since a court blocked the trustees from casting a vote until next Friday, no formal action has been taken.

Should the association decide to take action, it can issue a warning, place USC on probation or revoke the school’s accreditation wholesale, which has led to schools closing, according to a previous article from The State.

“I doubt (SACS) would just drop them, but that’s always an option,” Wheelan said.

McMaster spokesman Brian Symmes declined to comment.

Any school with Carolina in its name will only get a slap on the wrist.

I'm not sure there is anything at UofSuCk that provides legitimacy, especially the football team!

If they are accredited, something is very wrong with the accreditation process.

First, it is Richard Harpootlian trying to clean up Five Points(Good luck). And now we have a governor trying to appoint a new President for USCoot. What strange bedfellows. Former head of the State Democratic Party, and one of the GOOD OLE BOYS from the Republican Party. With this kind of help, Coot U. should go down the tubes in no time. It almost makes you feel sorry for them.

Who cares anyway. It wouldn't hurt their football program. You'd never know they were accredited anyway if you listen to their fan base.


Typical problem for them: located one block from
