Clemson Families,

I wanted to take this opportunity to introduce myself and extend a warm welcome from the Division of Student Affairs. My name is Chris Miller, and I’m in my third academic year as the associate vice president and dean of students at Clemson.

Led by Vice President for Student Affairs Almeda Jacks, our team has an unyielding commitment to student development and success. Two things stand out when I think about our role as student affairs professionals. First, we are active participants in watching students move from point A to point B. Second, we get a real-time picture of a student’s professional, personal, spiritual and academic growth from day one. And that is incredibly rewarding to us.

Student Affairs has considerable resources to aid your student’s Clemson experience. Within my purview are a number of departments designed to provide acclimatization, care, development, discipline and growth. Throughout the year, you will become familiar with many of our departments through this Family Press newsletter. Our intention is to provide you with pertinent updates on upcoming events, programs, services and activities.

As we go through the early stages of the fall semester, I cannot help but think of how privileged I am to work with the nation’s best and brightest students each and every day. Please know we are here to assist your student in any way we can.


Dr. Chris Miller
