Freedom Leadership started this petition to University of South Carolina Board of Trustees

The University of South Carolina’s Board of Trustees will vote tomorrow, Friday July 12, to make Robert L. Caslen, Jr. the University’s next President.  This petition is intended to support General Caslen election to the Trustees.

General Caslen is a United States veteran who served in the U.S. Army for 43 years. His military career culminated in 2018 as the 59th Superintendent/President of the United States Military Academy at West Point.

Under his direction as Superintendent, the Academy was recognized as the number one public college in the Nation by Forbes Magazine and the number one public college by U.S. News and World Report. Through the establishment of Centers of Excellence at West Point, Robert L. Caslen developed an integration between Army applied problem sets and West Point research and intellectual capital. He stood up the Army Cyber Institute to build skills and Army leaders required for the new cyber fight. He won support of Army leadership and of Congress to build over $2B in capital expenditures. Working with Director of Athletics, he revamped the athletic program and made it self-sustaining. He created partnerships with the NCAA and Department of Defense to conduct research into preventing and treating concussions and traumatic brain injury. And, fulfilling a pledge he made soon after becoming Superintendent, he led a sweeping reversal of Army’s football program and developed a culture of excellence through winning with character, culminating in Army defeating Navy in 2016 for the first time in 14 years, and beating both Air Force and Navy in 2017 to win the Commander-in-Chief’s trophy for the first time in 21 years.

General Caslen’s detractors are uninformed about the accolades listed above. We need to show the Board that we believe General Caslen to be the right man for the job.
