AAUP-SC Supports Continuation of Covid-19 Measures through Spring 2021

To Legislators, Colleagues, and Leaders in Higher Education,

This past weekend 12 SC college presidents issued a statement detailing the successful measures they have taken on their campuses to slow and stop the spread of COVID-19 as outlined by the CDC and SC-DHEC.

These measures include campus wide establishment of face coverings, sanitization protocols, and student orientation programs focused on social distancing in academic settings, residences, dining facilities, and social gatherings. Presidents also recognized the legislation of state government over the summer to implement these measures publicly in order to deter the spread of the pandemic this fall.

Now they are calling for elected officials in the state to “hold fast” to these public measures through the spring of 2021 and “not jeopardize our progress by relaxing protocols too soon.”

The AAUP-SC strongly supports this statement by these SC College Presidents:

Fred Carter, Francis Marion University

Bob Caslen, University Of South Carolina

James E. Clark, South Carolina State University

Jim Clements, Clemson University

David J. Cole, Medical University Of South Carolina
