Clemson University Real Estate Foundation Board of Directors and Committees

The CUREF Board of Directors is made up of members representing three categories of membership—elected, appointed and ex-officio.  

Elected directors are constituent leaders in the real estate industry who have been nominated, reviewed by the nominating committee, and elected by the Board. The Board has within its membership elected directors who serve four year staggered terms.  
Appointed directors are appointed by the Clemson University Board of Trustees and by the Chair of the Clemson University Foundation. The Board of Trustee appointments serve four year terms and the CUF appointment, selected by the CUF Board,  serves a term of one year.

Ex-officio directors are elected by the board annually.
