Report: Carol Folt Is Next President of U of Southern California

March 20, 2019

Carol Folt (at right) has been selected as the next president of the University of Southern California, the Los Angeles Times reported. Folt recently left the chancellorship of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where she served amid controversies over athletics and over a Confederate statue on campus -- a statue students and others tore down. On her way out of office, she took steps to remove the remains of the statue from campus -- receiving widespread praise from students and faculty members and criticism from members of the statewide UNC board. At USC, she will take over an institution facing multiple scandals and much criticism that it failed to prevent them.
