Government Relations

The Office of the President area serves as the liaison between Winthrop University and all levels of government: federal, state, and local. Staff convey the breadth, diversity, and value of the Winthrop experience to elected officials, state and federal agencies, and higher education advocates and policymakers.

The goal is to advance Winthrop's mission and therefore the educational opportunities available to current and future students, our faculty and staff, as well as the citizens of South Carolina. Communicating our commitment to regional economic and job growth, quality of life, and an educated citizenry is at the heart of Winthrop's government relations strategy.
