Clemson in the Lowcountry

May 18, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm

  • Guest Speaker-Lee Gill, Chief Diversity Officer, on Thursday, May 18

Lee joined Clemson in the spring of 2016 as the University’s new Chief Diversity Officer after most recently serving as the Chief Diversity Officer for the University of Akron.  Some of his responsibilities include implementing/providing strategic leadership for the University’s diversity plan, programs and policies and advising the president, administration, faculty, staff, students and campus inclusive-focused groups and committees on diversity issues.  At Lee’s suggestion, Clemson started a series of semi-annual President’s Forum on Inclusive Excellence and welcomed the Charlotte Hornets President, Fred Whitfield, as the first guest speaker in October 2016.

Lee earned a B.A. in political sciences at the University of Michigan and a J.D. at the Chicago-Kent College of Law of the Illinois Institute of Technology. His work at Akron has earned national recognition and he was named the 2014 Diversity Visionary Award recipient by Insight into Diversity. Prior to his appointment at Akron, he was chief executive officer of the Stratus Group Consultants, a management consulting firm providing climate assessments, diversity training and customer services and job satisfactions surveys.
