The South Carolina Commission for Minority Affairs was created in 1993 by the General  Assembly to provide the citizens of the State with a single point of contact for information regarding the State’s minority population.

Our Mission is to serve as a catalyst to bring about economic prosperity and social equity for all ethnic minorities.

To fulfill its mission and to achieve its vision, the South Carolina Commission for Minority Affairs embarked upon a strategic alignment process that involved state agencies, educational institutions, organizational, business leaders and community stakeholders. The process was designed to produce a strategic action pland that will guide the work of the Commission as it works to fulfill its mission.
