USC Upstate chancellor Tom Moore to leave

SPARTANBURG, S.C. (AP) _ The chancellor at the University of South Carolina Upstate in Spartanburg is stepping down. The Herald-Journal of Spartanburg reported that Tom Moore announced his decision in an address to faculty and staff this week. School spokeswoman Tammy Whaley says the timing of Moore’s departure has not been set. Whaley said USC President Harris Pastides (Pas-TEE-Dees) will decide when to search for a replacement. Moore says he looks forward to working with faculty, staff, students and the community this year. The school faculty in March approved a vote of no confidence in Moore. Many faculty members were upset by his decision to close the school’s Center for Women’s and Gender Studies and the Burroughs Child Development Center. The women’s center is still open. The child development center closed. ___ Information from: Herald-Journal,
