As co-chairs of the Richard T. Greener Memorial Committee, we sent this letter to President Caslen and the Board of Trustees this morning. While we are thrilled to see the administration consider changing the name of Sims College, we hope that this is just the first action in a much larger coordinated effort to reconcile our university’s history. We praise the students, faculty, and staff who have worked over the recent years and weeks to confront our university’s complicity and perpetuation of racism and ask that the administration continue to amplify those voices and demands.

On May 31st, the University of South Carolina sent out a letter from President Caslen regarding the killing of George Floyd and the support that the University has for its Black students. As a May 2020 graduate, my connection with the University is still strong, and to say that I was disappointed with the President’s response is an understatement. The letter was as genuine as any other pre-written template for a PR class. It did not convince me that President Caslen cares. It did not convince me that President Caslen truly understands the significance of the protests we are seeing today and the extent to which UofSC has and continues to perpetuate structural racism.

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to ravage the United States, it has become clear that vote-by-mail is the only viable option for administering the general election this upcoming November. While that realization is obvious to many, some powerful political figures have embarked on an anti-vote-by-mail crusade that ultimately amounts to the newest installment of a long line of voter suppression tactics.
