Presidential Statement

The trustees, administrators, faculty, and staff of Francis Marion work collegially to serve the student body and maintain a system of shared governance characterized by strong respect and deference for one another. The intellectually vibrant faculty is committed to teaching, research, and service to the multiple constituencies served. This institution is every president's dream- the faculty and staff continually accomplish unbelievable things but are reluctant to accept the praise that they are rightly due.
