TSU Alum Dr. Teal named Acting President of SCSU

Dr. Rita J. Teal, the interim vice president of academic affairs at South Carolina State University, will become its acting president when Dr. George E. Cooper steps down on March 30.

After several hours in executive session Friday morning, the S.C. State University Board of Trustees approved the appointment with a voice vote. Several trustees opposed the appointment.


Teal earned a doctor of education degree in curriculum and instruction from the University of Memphis, then Memphis State University; a master of arts in education from the University of Michigan; and a bachelor of science in mathematics from Tennessee State University.
