USC Aiken has named Sandra J. Jordan as the new chancellor, the university announced today.

Jordan currently is the provost and vice president for academic affairs at Georgia College & State University.

"I would like to welcome Sandra Jordan to the University of South Carolina family," USC President Harris Pastides said. "Her background leading a distinguished faculty and advocating tirelessly on behalf of students gives her the experience and vision necessary to take the helm at a thriving campus like USC Aiken. She has the personality and disposition to make new friends for USCA and play an active role in the community. The Board of Trustees and I have high aspirations for the next chancellor, and I am confident we found the right person for the job."

Jordan will become the fourth chancellor of USC Aiken, succeeding Thomas L. Hallman, who is retiring after 12 years in that position.
