The first Dean’s Leadership Circle Summit was held on campus recently and was hailed as a tremendous success.

A group of Leadership Circle donors gathered for fellowship and enlightened conversation with Dean Anand Gramopadhye.  Please click here to view photos from the event and watch the video below to hear directly from the participants.


At the Leadership Circle Summit, donors built stronger business connections with each other and gained insight into the dean’s vision for the college and key partnerships with companies such as Samsung.

The Dean’s Leadership Circle is comprised of a prestigious group of donors who support the dean’s vision for the college through unrestricted gifts to the Dean’s Excellence Fund.

This year, the fund provided support for international travel for the Clemson Engineers for Developing Countries , a Lunch and Learn series for PEER & WISE, two Dean’s Faculty Fellows, and student completion grants.
