Update on the search for a Chief Diversity Officer

By Bob Jones
Executive Vice president for Academic Affairs and Provost

The search for Clemson’s new Chief Diversity Officer (CDO) continues.

Two well-regarded candidates recently participated in on-campus interviews and forums. After receiving great feedback from the campus community, we will be seeking additional candidates who have the knowledge, talent and enthusiasm to drive Clemson forward with our diversity and inclusiveness efforts.

The CDO search committee, which I am chairing, will work with Human Resources to begin reviewing additional candidates as soon as possible.

We 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.

Thank you for your involvement in this process. We will announce when we will have additional candidates visiting campus and encourage your participation.
