Haley Tells SC State Trustees School Needs Them

Posted: Updated:
SOUTH CAROLINA -

South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley says trustees at troubled South Carolina State University must become more transparent and unified to overcome the trouble facing the state's only historically black public university.

Haley's meeting with trustees on Friday came as the Orangeburg school faces budget problems and enrollment declines. Former trustee Jonathan Pinson is facing federal kickback charges after authorities say he took money and gifts to push through a land sale.

Haley was blunt in telling university trustees they can't keep functioning as they have with deep internal divisions. The governor says at some point trustees have to put differences aside.

State lawmakers have introduced bills to replace some or all of the university's trustees.

Trustees say despite disagreements, they'll work to turn around the school.
