CLEMSON – The College of Science held its fall semester staff kickoff meeting September 12 at the Barnes Center.

Chief of Strategy and Operations Lili Gehring presented an update on several campus-wide initiatives, including the move to a shared financial services operations model and merit pay compensation plan.

Dean Cynthia Y. Young presented an overview of the College’s strategic plan SciForward, shared news on exciting initiatives, encouraged staff to share ideas on how to do things better, and thanked them for their hard work each day.

As Young noted, staff are the face of the College as they interact with faculty and students on a daily basis. They are largely responsible for the positive experience these stakeholders have with SCIENCE.

More than 55 SCIENCE staff attended the event.
