His tenure at Clemson was marked by some huge changes, including substantial improvements in our academic reputation. He has changed the face of Clemson in a great way, from a regionally respected university to a nationally respected one. He has done so while also providing a record level of funding for athletics. Well done, President Barker!
I am concerned that his replacement will not have the high standards for Clemson that he has. I sincerely hope our search for the next president is aggressive and thorough. It is a very key hire, for sure.
