From the Dean

As we close out the 2016 academic year this month’s newsletter is focused on honoring our outstanding alumni, students and faculty.

Our Thomas Green Clemson Academy banquet was especially exciting this year as we saw the induction of the first female member. Our academy honorees represent a variety of disciplines and career paths – but they’re all united by a personal commitment to serving the college and university.

A number of our faculty have been recognized at the college and university levels for outstanding achievement and service. These faculty superlatives are enhancing the academic and research enterprise of the college and enriching the Clemson Experience for our students.

This month we celebrated our final “Meet the Dean” event for spring 2017. I’d like to thank everyone who attended, and in particular, our hosts, Mitch and Carla Norville, and Michael and Kim Watt. They made this final gathering very special. You can find photos from the evening here.

I wish you all the best for a restful, enjoyable summer.

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