The estate of Thomas Green Clemson first came into his possession through his wife, Anna Calhoun, well before it was eventually bequeathed to South Carolina to found a college. It’s just one of the earliest ways that women played a vital role in making Clemson University what it is today. The newest women to join leadership ranks at Clemson include Dean Leslie Hossfeld (CBSHS), Dean Wendy York (Business) and Dean Cynthia Young (Science). They are each championing innovation and enhanced student experiences for their respective colleges. These women bring passion, vision, experience and dedication to lasting outcomes to Clemson.
