Scope and Content Note

The Office of Government Relations serves as the liaison between Winthrop University and all levels of government: federal, state, and local. The staff conveys the breadth, diversity, and value of the Winthrop experience to elected officials, state and federal agencies, and higher education advocates and policymakers. The goal is to advance Winthrop’s mission and therefore the educational opportunities available to current and future students, our faculty and staff, as well as the citizens of South Carolina. Communicating our commitment to regional economic and job growth, quality of life, and an educated citizenry is at the heart of Winthrop’s government relations strategy.

Additional Notes

The Office of Government Relations was created in the 2015/2016 academic year. The Division of University Relations was formerly known as the Office of College Relations, Office of Public Affairs, Office of Public Relations, and Office of University Relations.
