Emeritus College

Welcome to the Clemson University Emeritus College. Please use our website to explore the many ways that Clemson’s dynamic and illustrious contingent of emeritus faculty continue to serve the University while enjoying a rich and engaged retirement. The decades of service to Clemson students, South Carolina and the nation have imbued Clemson emeriti with dedication and an appetite for continuing involvement. I am proud to serve as the Director of the Emeritus College!

  • Mentoring International Students

    The Emeritus College provides emeriti faculty the opportunity to be a mentor in the CIS program. The College is currently in need of CIS mentors for the spring, summer, and Fall semesters. Now is a great time for interested emeriti to volunteer. The program helps international graduate students improve their English speaking communication skills and learn about the American culture. All international graduate students may participate in the program but the majority of the students participate to improve their fluency sufficiently to pass the Clemson English Speaking Proficiency (CESP) test. It is a one-on-one mentoring program in which the emeriti faculty meet with the student weekly for about one hour. The program is flexible in that the student and mentor decide on the time and place to meet. The mentor and student design the program according to the student’s needs or expectations.

    The CIS program has been very successful. The program fills a very real university and the students appreciate the one-on-one interaction with emeriti who have had long careers as university faculty. If you are interested in volunteering for this program contact Adolph Beyerlein, Chair of the Emeritus College Curriculum Committee at or cell 864-643-9047.

  • Volunteers Needed for CESP/CIS

    Emeriti are needed to help grade the CESP (Clemson English Speaking Proficient) test the first of each semester. This test assesses international graduate students’ readiness to serve as TA’s in the classroom. Emeriti are also needed to work one-on-one with international students through the Conversation with International Students (CIS) program. This requires about an hour each week and is a most rewarding undertaking. Download program brochure for more information. To participate in either of these programs, contact Adolph Beyerlein, Chair of the Emeritus College Curriculum Committee at or cell 864-643-9047.
