Dr. Gregory Little will start his position as new Acting President/Executive Director of CHE March 4.

The South Carolina Commission on Higher Education (CHE) has announced veteran educator Dr. Gregory D. Little as the organization's acting president and executive director.

"I am honored to join the South Carolina Commission on Higher Education as acting president and executive director, and I am eager to lead this agency in the coming months,” Little said. "Through cooperation and collaboration with our institutions, policymakers, and stakeholders, our agency will strive to create a positive impact on higher education that benefits both our students and our state."

According to a press release, Little has been present in the classroom for 27 years with experiences in K-12 and postsecondary higher education administration.

Little earned his undergraduate degree from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington and a master’s and doctorate in curriculum and instruction from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

Before accepting this role, he was Vice President of Strategic Partnerships and Innovation with the South Carolina Technical College System and before that spent half a decade as the Lexington County School District One Superintendent.

“The Commission looks forward to working with Dr. Little in his role as acting president and executive director, and we sincerely value his leadership during this critical transition period,” said CHE Chair Wes Hayes. “We have strong confidence in Dr. Little’s ability to guide the agency and maintain the CHE’s commitment to accessible, affordable, and high-quality postsecondary education in South Carolina."
