The presidential search committee appointed by the Clemson University Board of Trustees met Thursday (Sept. 5) to begin narrowing its pool of nominations. Committee chair Smyth McKissick provided the following update on the status of the search:
“The search is going well, and we’re very pleased with the quality of the candidate pool. The committee has been working hard to review all candidate files, keeping in mind the desired qualifications outlined in the leadership statement
