Fall 2018 Faculty Meeting Recap

Faculty returned to campus recently for the start of the 2018-2019 academic year. The year began with a special University General Faculty Meeting at the start of the University Convocation. Dr. Jim Clements, president of Clemson University, Dr. Robert Jones, executive vice president for academic affairs and provost, and Dr. Jan Holmevik, president of the Clemson Faculty Senate, shared with faculty colleagues about the direction and initiatives Clemson has in store for the upcoming year. Watch the video rebroadcast of the meeting online.


Faculty Senate serves as the official representative body of the faculty and the link between faculty and administration. The senate reviews and recommends policies and procedures, which are then compiled in the Faculty Manual. For over fifty years, the Faculty Senate has participated in a variety of initiatives to improve the status of the faculty of Clemson University.

A history of the Faculty Senate may be found in "Clemson University Faculty Senate: Over Sixty Years of Service."

Detailed information about the Faculty Senate, including membership and governing documents, as well as official meeting minutes and reports, can be found under Senate Information or in the Senate Brochure.
