Position: President, Clemson University

South Carolina was severely impacted by storms creating heavy rains and unprecedented flooding over the weekend. We thank state and local leaders and emergency first responders who have helped people deal with this disaster and will guide the recovery over the coming weeks.

While the main campus was spared the brunt of the rainfall, we are indebted to all of the staff members who worked tirelessly to prepare for and manage the impact of the storm and maintain operations, even with the added challenge of a nationally televised football game. We continue to gather information from Clemson locations around the state, and so far we have received positive reports from areas hardest hit by the storms. A team is gathering at midday today to gather and assess reports, and we will communicate further as we learn more.

However, we know that many of our students, faculty and staff have received flood damage to their homes. Many roads leading to and from their homes and places of work may be impassible. The Provost and I encourage faculty to work with students who may be dealing with added stress because of this situation.

Clemson will also reach out to our sister institutions to offer our assistance. Please continue to keep those affected by the storms and floods in your thoughts and prayers.

Sincerely,
Jim Clements
