From the Dean

Regular readers of our e-newsletter, @CES, will notice we have a new look and a new name – IDEAS Monthly. This redesign comes as Clemson University reorganizes its colleges as part of a bold new strategic plan.

Our college is now called the College of Engineering, Computing and Applied Sciences. The chemistry, mathematical sciences, and physics and astronomy departments are joining the new College of Science under the leadership of interim Dean Mark Leising.

Our rich culture of diversity, top talent and world class educational and research experiences make us a key player in helping the University successfully carry out this new strategic initiative.

I’d like to take a moment to thank our alumni who helped Clemson surpass its billion-dollar capital campaign goal. I am grateful to each of you for contributing to the remarkable success of “The Will to Lead” campaign.

As we move forward with Clemson’s new academic structure we will continue to rely on your advice and counsel. We appreciate your input. Please let us hear from you.

Anand Gramopadhye, Dean
College of Engineering, Computing and Applied Sciences
