Margaret Camp, M.Ed. has joined Clemson as the director of Student Disability Services. Camp succeeds Arlene Stewart, who retired from the university in June. The new director has worked with students with disabilities for more than two decades and comes to the university from USC-Upstate, where she served as director of disability services for more than 10 years.
“I’m very excited to join Clemson, which has such a great national reputation,” Camp said. “I’m anxious to hit the ground running and will be working closely with faculty, staff and students to enhance educational and inclusion opportunities.”
The North Carolina native currently serves on the Association on Higher Education and Disability (AHEAD) Standing Committee on Professional Development, the Southeast ADA Center Roundtable of Advisors and the Spartanburg Mayor’s Form on People with Disabilities.
Camp was selected as one of 25 disability services providers across the country to participate in the three-year Department of Education funded training grant, Project ShIFT (Shaping Inclusion through Foundational Transformation). She has held leadership positions and speaking engagements at the local, state and national levels, including service as the program chair for the AHEAD 2011 Annual Conference and as Chair of the South Carolina AHEAD affiliate group.
Camp earned a B.S. in psychology from Guilford College, a M.Ed. in school psychology from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and has completed Ph.D. coursework in school psychology from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
