    From our dean

    "A robust, diverse student body is a critical ingredient in a great modern university.  Clemson is committed to ensuring that all students feel welcome, supported, and have the ability to succeed at the very highest level.  I am delighted to see campus student organizations leading the way forward on LGBTQ issues, and I hope we can all work together as a campus community to enact meaningful change for the better.  

    Here at Clemson, I see energy within our student body, our faculty, and our staff to create meaningful change for the better — for all students, and particularly for students who identify as LGBTQ.  Our work is far from done, but I believe we are moving in the right direction — with your help. "
