Quick Facts

 Last year legislators created a committee to recommend a strategic plan for higher education.
 Public input is welcomed and encouraged at meeting.

ROCK HILL, S.C. - Winthrop University and the York County Regional Chamber of Commerce will host a public hearing on the Higher Education Study Committee draft recommendations for a statewide plan for higher education.

The meeting will be held at 4 p.m., Monday, Nov. 17, in the Tuttle Dining Room, McBryde Hall, at Winthrop University. The public is welcome and encouraged to take part in this process.

In 2007, the General Assembly created a Higher Education Study Committee to work with the S.C. Commission on Higher Education to make recommendations for a statewide higher education strategic plan. The committee has developed a plan centered on four goals, including 1) making South Carolina one of the most educated states; 2) increasing research and innovation; 3) making South Carolina a leader in workforce training and educational services; and 4) realizing South Carolina’s potential: resources and effectiveness.

Work is on-going to develop implementation details for each of the goals. The study committee is seeking public input on their recommendations prior to releasing a full report to the General Assembly in December.
