Parents' Council

parentsWelcome to the Clemson University Parents' Council. As a parent of a Clemson student, you are automatically a member of the Parents' Council. All Clemson parents are encouraged to become involved in the Parents’ Council, whether through the Parents' Council Advisory Board or becoming a committee volunteer. The Council was created in 1990 and works hand-in-hand with the University administration. Parents’ Council helps ensure that you are an informed parent. Each one of us is needed to make the Parents’ Council a strong constituency for parents, students and Clemson University.

The council has adopted four goals, which guide its activities.

  • Offer a parent’s perspective to the University.
  • Be well-informed University ambassadors.
  • Assist in academic recruiting.
  • Promote fund-raising efforts for student-related activities, facilities and organizations.
