Search for Chief Diversity Officer continues

We are continuing our search for a Chief Diversity Officer, who will have a key role in implementing the diversity plan I outlined for the Board of Trustees in July.

The plan was developed after dozens of meetings with faculty, staff, students and alumni about how to improve the climate for diversity and inclusion at Clemson.

I will charge the CDO with developing and implementing a strategic plan to increase the diversity of the student body, staff, faculty and administration, with measurable goals.

The CDO search committee, chaired by Provost Bob Jones, already has interviewed two well-regarded candidates and will be seeking additional candidates as soon as possible.

I want your continued involvement in this process. Here’s how you can help:

  1. Visit the CDO job posting and share it with your professional networks.
  2. Attend the on-campus forums so that you can get to know the candidates. These forums are also live streamed on ClemsonTV.
  3. Continue to share your feedback.

When additional candidate forums are scheduled you will be notified via Inside Clemson.
