As another wonderful semester at Clemson University comes to a close, we have much to celebrate in the College of Behavioral, Social and Health Sciences!
First, the Center for Criminal Justice and Social Research was recently approved by the Clemson Board of Trustees and will work to advance criminal justice and social science research in underserved communities across South Carolina and the United States.
The Department of Political Science will begin a new chapter this fall, as leadership passes from Jeffrey Peake to Joe Ura. During Dr. Peake’s 12-year tenure, the Department has nearly doubled in size, expanded its program offerings and increased faculty research and grant funding. We are very fortunate to have Dr. Peake return to the classroom to mentor the next generation of political science students at Clemson, while Dr. Ura finds new and innovative ways to build upon the Department’s successes.
Dr. Corliss Outley, professor in the Department of Parks, Recreation and Tourism Management, is making history as the first African American woman to be inducted as a Fellow of the Academy of Leisure Sciences — a prestigious honor that highlights outstanding performers and recognized leaders in the leisure profession. What a remarkable achievement.
CBSHS faculty, staff and students are among the best and the brightest at Clemson University, and we could not continue to reach new heights without your generosity and support. If you missed the opportunity to give on Give Day, please consider donating to our College fund today. In alignment with the University’s new strategic plan, Clemson Elevate, your gifts allow us to deliver the number one student experience for our students, foster undergraduate, graduate and faculty research, and transform lives throughout South Carolina and beyond.
As always, thank you for your continued support of the College of Behavioral, Social and Health Sciences.
