The University of South Carolina Upstate seeks to transform individuals and communities through meaningful engagement and to promote a healthier, more just community by building mutual trust and enabling shared growth in the Upstate and beyond. We encourage different ideas – fostering respect, innovation, and transparent communication as we support wellness, diversity, equity, and inclusion, strive for collaboration, and welcome feedback that will lead us to continuous improvement. To these ends, the Engage Upstate Scholars Commons will house information gleaned from, relevant to, and shared back with our global community.
