The Student Affairs Student Advisory Board is a group of approximately 30 students composed of representatives from freshmen through graduate students reflecting the diversity of the Clemson student body. This Board is responsible for communicating thoughts, ideas, and concerns to the Vice President for Student Affairs and the Division of Student Affairs administration. The primary purpose of this group is to make suggestions on ways to increase student learning and improve student life at Clemson.


The Board meets at least monthly with Student Affairs administrators as well as other top University officials to discuss various issues related to both the University and the city. The meetings are hosted by the Vice President for Student Affairs who requests input, opinions, and recommendations from the variety of student members who express different aspects of student interest. Student Affairs Student Advisory Board members are well-informed on issues at the University, and they are expected to share this information with other students before and after meetings to gauge and convey campus-wide student opinion. These students also represent and serve the University in various other capacities as requested by Student Affairs.
