Faculty and staff can make a difference in promoting diversity and inclusion at Clemson through commission service. The University’s Commission on Women (Women’s Commission) is accepting nominations for two faculty seats and one staff seat. Please nominate a colleague or yourself. We welcome all!
The Women’s Commission was established to improve the quality of life for women at Clemson. The Commission’s charge is to:
-Discern the status of women at Clemson University and document findings;
-Discover and pursue the removal of institutional barriers identified by the Commission;
-Collect information and/or conduct research regarding issues which affect women, including the study of practices followed at other Universities’ Commissions on Women; and
-Explore problem areas that limit equal opportunities and advancement.
It is the Commission’s pledge to encourage and inspire women to become leaders, problem solvers and innovators making meaningful contributions to American society. The Women’s Commission will publicize the role of Clemson University to improve the status of women at all levels.
Commission members serve three-year terms and report to the Council on Inclusion and Diversity, co-chaired by Chief Inclusion and Equity Officer Lee Gill and Executive Vice President for Academic Affairs and Provost Bob Jones.
Commission meetings take place at 12:30 until 2 p.m. on the last Friday of each month during the fall and spring semesters.
Submit nominations by June 12 to Linda Tindal by email at email@example.com or by phone at 864-656-153.
