Shaping and Leading South Carolina's Future: A history of The Clemson University College of Health, Education, and Human Development White-paper and Learner Dispositions
In January and February, several of the authors of the white paper and the dean met with each unit in the college.
At these meetings attendees focused on the one-page summary and discussed the following:
- Build a shared understanding of the principles and concepts presented;
- Learn what each unit is doing now in relation to these principles and concepts; and
- Determine what principles and concepts are not being addressed
Dean Allen asked faculty and staff to "please remember that our goal is to provide our students with the best possible education that prepares them to address the complexity of issues and problems facing our constituent groups especially the citizens of South Carolina.
"We want to take full advantage of our uniqueness as a college. We have the opportunity to provide a distinctive educational experience for our students because of the unique strengths we possess as a college. The collaborative experiences we can provide far exceed what can be provided by many of our peer programs and institutions.
"Further, by utilizing the unique configuration of our college we should be able to provide our students with a comprehensive understanding of creating and leading an integrated system of education, health and human services."
