South Carolina State University President Has His Contract Extended

The South Carolina State University Board of Trustees announced that it will extend the employment contract of the university’s 12th president, James E. Clark. The board voted to renew Clark’s contract through June 2022 with an option for renewal for an additional two years based on the president’s performance.

“I am very proud of the tremendous successes this administration has made thus far; It has certainly been an unheralded turnaround,” said Dr. Clark. “I look forward to working with this board to continue the job of leading this institution, especially through these unprecedented times, and to take SC State to an even higher level.”

Clark was named president of the university in 2016. At that time he was a member of the university’s board of trustees. Earlier, Clark had a successful career in business as a vice president of AT&T’s computer division and as an executive for Exxon, Gillette, and General Electric.

Clark is a graduate of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the Sloan School of Management at MIT.
