COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - The University of South Carolina will not be punished by a group that accredits colleges after accusations it allowed the selection of its new president to be influenced by outside political forces.
The university will continue to be monitored by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools and must continue to take steps to address the association’s concerns,, the group said.
The organization opened an investigation into the university after the tumultuous hiring of new president Bob Caslen, a retired Army general who was the superintendent of West Point for five years.

Caslen was named one of four finalists for the job, but University of South Carolina trustees in April voted unanimously to reopen the search. Gov. Henry McMaster then asked board members to not continue to search and vote for Caslen.
