The University of South Carolina welcomes President-elect Michael Amiridis, who will serve as the 30th president of the university.
Michael Amiridis, the chancellor of the University of Illinois-Chicago since 2015, has been named the 30th president of the University of South Carolina.
Amiridis was unanimously selected Friday (Jan. 14) by the university’s Board of Trustees to lead the state's flagship university system.
The move is a homecoming for Amiridis, who spent more than two decades on campus in Columbia, serving as a chemical engineering professor, department chair, dean of the College of Engineering and Computing and the university's executive vice president for academic affairs and provost. He left the university to lead the Chicago institution in 2015.
