Student Advisory Board

Clemson Students standing outside on stairs

The College of Behavioral, Social and Health Sciences Student Advisory Board provides support to the College in meeting its strategic goals. Board members are each assigned to one of four committees: Communication, Development, Diversity and Inclusion, and Professional Development. Each committee works to assist the College in providing an outstanding educational experience for all students.

  • Selection Process

    Each Spring a call for applications is sent to all undergraduate and graduate students in the College in order to allow for selection of new board members. Once selected to serve on the board, upon successful completion of board membership students are given the opportunity to remain on the board throughout their academic career at Clemson. Therefore, the number of board vacancies will vary yearly. The board strives to provide representation across majors, class rank, and a variety of demographic factors to allow for diverse representation of students within the College.
