From the Dean

This month we are celebrating two of our summer diversity programs and the invaluable partners that make them possible.  For two decades Duke Energy has provided support for Project WISE, which shows middle school girls the opportunities awaiting them in science, technology, engineering and math, and the PEER and WISE Experience, which provides incoming freshmen a valuable introduction to academics and campus life. Both programs are designed for students from groups who are underrepresented in STEM fields, including women and minorities. In addition to Duke Energy, funding also comes from Clemson’s Emerging Scholars program and the National Science Foundation’s Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation.

An important part of the PEER and WISE Experience is introducing our freshmen to successful alumni who’ve made the most of their Clemson experience. This year Coach Tony Elliott, the Tigers’ co-offensive coordinator, who is an industrial engineer by background, shared his amazing story of perseverance and commitment. Engineering helps him think analytically on and off the field, which he says is critical to his success. No doubt these incoming freshmen will remember him as an inspiring role model as they move forward with their undergraduate career. 

All the best,

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