Founded in 1801, we enjoy a rich history of more than 200 years of academic leadership, and we're building on that tradition. South Carolina is one of a select group of universities to earn the Carnegie top-tier designation in both research activity and community engagement. According to national publications like Kiplinger’s Inc., Forbes and U.S. News and World Report, our programs stack up against the best in the nation and around the world.
