President's Statement

Francis Marion is every president's dream; faculty and staff accomplish extraordinary things but are reticent to accept praise. The trustees, administration, faculty, and staff work collegially to support a system of shared governance characterized by strong respect and admiration for each other. The faculty is intellectually vibrant and committed to qualitative teaching and research in service to one of the most diverse and disadvantaged regions of the country.
