The Clemson University's Board of Trustees, 2014

Welcome from the Board of Trustees

iChairman of the Board of Trustees at Clemson University ´╗┐The university was founded in 1889 through a bequest from Thomas Green Clemson, a Philadelphia-born, European-educated engineer, musician and artist who married John C. Calhoun’s daughter, Anna, and settled at her family estate in South Carolina. Mr. Clemson believed that the way to rebuild his adopted state’s war-ravaged economy was through scientific education, so he left his home and fortune to the state of South Carolina to create the institution that bears his name.

His will also outlined a unique governance system that includes seven Trustees who select their successors and six Trustees who are appointed by the State Legislature, a system that provides both long-term stability and public accountability. The Board’s role is to govern through establishment of policies that ensure academic quality and freedom, protect the University’s financial security, and ensure efficient and effective administration through the Board’s selected president and his or her executive officers.

More information about the Board, its policies, and its meetings can be found on this site. Thank you for visiting. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us.
