Clemson Alumni Association Social Media Promotion Policy

The Clemson Alumni Association prides itself on enhancing the lifelong Clemson experience by serving, involving, informing, and engaging our alumni, current and future students, and friends of the University. Our social media accounts have been implemented to achieve these goals.

Therefore, the Alumni Association is open to promoting certain events and material that are not hosted solely by the Clemson Alumni Association, but by officially approved extensions of the Alumni Association.

Clemson Alumni Association Officer Nomination Information

The Officers of the Clemson Alumni Association are the President, President-Elect, and Immediate Past President. Each of these capacities carries with it a two-year term that commences on July 1, following the election of a President-Elect. As such, the cumulative commitment of service for an Officer is six years, from the commencement of duties as President-Elect to the completion of a term as Immediate Past President.

The duties of the officers of the Alumni Association are generally as follows:

  1. President–The President is the presiding officer and chief ambassador of the AlumniAssociation, and serves as Chair for all meetings of the Association, Council, Board ofDirectors, and Executive Committee; appoints the standing committees and any special committees deemed appropriate; serves as a member of the Clemson FoundationBoard; serves as a member of the IPTAY Board of Directors; appoints the AlumniAssociation’s representative to the Athletic Council; appoints at-large representatives tothe Alumni Council; serves as an ex-officio member of all committees and eachClemson Club and Alumni Constituency group; performs all duties and responsibilities generally assigned to the office of President.
  2. President-Elect–The President-Elect shall, in the absence or at the request of thePresident, carry out the duties of the President; serves as Chair of the Honors andAwards Committee; serves as a member of the Clemson Foundation Board.
  3. Immediate Past President–The Immediate Past President shall serve in whatever capacity is deemed appropriate by the President, and serves as the Chair of theNominating Committee.

While each of these leadership positions consists of responsibilities critical to the success of the Association, it should come as no surprise that the role of President is chief in terms of importance and time commitment. It is estimated that this individual will – on average – spend 10 hours/week engaged in official Alumni Association business and initiatives. Some weeks could require up to 20 or more hours of a time commitment, especially during the scheduled meetings of the various University leadership boards (Alumni Association, Foundation, and IPTAY). The ability to travel regularly to campus, as well as to attend other Association events off-campus, is required of the President.

It is equally important to note that the role of Officer is a volunteer position. Travel expenditures, as well as lodging and related accommodations, for Association-related activities are the responsibility of the Officer.

An interest/nomination form is can be found by clicking here. This form should be used to submit the name and supporting information for any candidate. All nominations must be received by close of business on March 31, 2018. For best consideration, candidates should submit up to three accompanying letters of support.

Swinneys Named Honorary Alumni

William Christopher “Dabo” Swinney and Kathleen Bennett Swinney have been named honorary alumni of Clemson University. Both were recognized with this designation at the 2017 All In Ball, an event presented by Dabo’s ALL IN TEAM FOUNDATION.

Left to Right: Deshaun Watson, Beth Clements, Clemson University President Jim Clements, Kathleen Swinney, Dabo Swinney, Clemson Alumni Executive Director Wil Brasington, Clemson Alumni President Sandy Edge

A graduate of the University of Alabama, Dabo began his career on the Clemson University Football Coaching Staff in 2003 and was named Interim Head Coach in 2008, eventually taking on the role permanently at the end of that football season.

Known for his exemplary recruitment of talented football players and enhancing the focus on student-athlete success in the classroom, Dabo recently lead the Clemson Tigers to become the 2016 National Football Champions.

Kathleen, also a graduate of the University of Alabama and former school teacher, has not only been a support system for Dabo and her family, but has also focused her attention on using her high-profile platform as the First Lady of Clemson Football to better the lives of others.

Dabo and Kathleen are highly recognized for their impact in the community including the development of Dabo’s ALL IN TEAM FOUNDATION. The mission of this organization is “to raise awareness of critical education and health issues in order to change lives of people across the state of South Carolina.”

The Foundation raises funds for various initiatives through three major events including the All In Ball, the Dabo Swinney Ladies Football Clinic and the Dabo Swinney Football Camp focused on elementary, middle and high school athletes.

The funds raised at these events are distributed to four primary focus entities including Breast Cancer Research, Call Me MISTER, The Family Effect and LIFE Programs at the University of Alabama and Clemson University which provide specific programming for children and young adults with learning disabilities and special learning needs.

In addition the foundation provides grants to organizations throughout the Upstate with similar objectives.

The Clemson Alumni Association president, Col. Sandy Edge, and Executive Director, Wil Brasington, along with University President James P. Clements and his wife Beth, presented the Swinneys with the honor.

Honorary alumni are selected by the Alumni Association Honors and Awards Committee on the basis of outstanding service, lifelong devotion and loyalty to Clemson University or the Clemson Alumni Association.
