Presbyterian College


Presbyterian College invites nominations and applications for its 20th President.

Presbyterian College (PC) is a small private liberal arts college embracing its history of innovative service, rigorous interdisciplinary academic programming, and Presbyterian values. Affiliated with the Presbyterian Church (USA), PC embraces its church-relatedness while welcoming students, faculty, and administrators of all faiths, identities, and backgrounds.

PC is located in Clinton, South Carolina, a college town in the Upstate, which is conveniently positioned approximately 40 miles from Greenville, 30 miles from Spartanburg, and 60 miles from Columbia. The college holds a Carnegie classification as a Baccalaureate College with an Arts & Sciences Focus.

Since its founding in 1880, Presbyterian College has emphasized a liberal arts education. Partly due to the success and recognition of the college undergraduate science programs, the college founded three graduate health science programs to meet the needs of the community. The Presbyterian College School of Pharmacy, Physician Assistant Studies Program, and Occupational Therapy Program continue the College of Arts & Sciences' focus on education that has earned the institution a reputation as being a top liberal arts college.

This is an exciting time in PC's history. Presbyterian College seeks a bold visionary who embraces the spirit of innovation and service that sets PC apart from other institutions, and a leader who is passionate about building on institutional momentum and transforming PC for the future. The bold new, market position as America's Innovative Service College, has prepared the college to meet the challenges of the competitive world of higher education as the college remains true to itself. The next president is charged with aligning goals and strategies of the recently adopted strategic plan while bringing their unique vision as they achieve higher levels of impact and recognition through executing the strategy.
