The Will to Lead: A Campaign for Clemson not only reached its goal of $600 million by its June 30, 2012, deadline, it surpassed it by nearly $9 million. Six years ago, the Will to Lead campaign began with a goal to support students and faculty and to provide an exceptional education. The campaign created 357 new scholarships and fellowships and provided endowed chairs, professorships and support for 95 faculty. The Will to Lead campaign has made it possible for Clemson to renovate and/or build new facilities and support programs that give students a more hands-on, engaged learning experience. There is so much more to do — so many more needs to be met. Clemson will continue the Will to Lead campaign to $1 billion.Clemson's major announcement was what we predicted. As much as I dislike Barker and his penny-pinching over the Athletic Department this decade, this is a great achievement and a job well done. I guess my only issue with such a fundraiser, which we do need for various reasons, is that they'll continue raising the tuition/fees costs for students to attend no matter how much they intake.
