“Given the pending changes in our programs and services in Greenville, I am confident that Dr. Carson will effectively guide the USC Upstate into this new and exciting transition,” said Dr. Charles Harrington, senior vice chancellor for academic affairs. “During the next few months, a search for a permanent replacement will be conducted.”

Carson’s new duties are a result of the retirement of Dr. Judith S. Prince, who served as the vice chancellor of the Greenville Campus from July 2004 to January 2013.
