Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

Mission Statement:

Clemson Athletics seeks to provide a safe, equitable and inclusive environment for all, regardless of race, gender identity, sexual orientation, spirituality, socioeconomic background, disability or any other defining characteristic. We believe a diverse, welcoming community is core to our identity and creates better ideas, policy and actions.

Furthermore, we seek to establish and maintain an inclusive culture that fosters equitable participation for student-athletes and career opportunities for coaches and administrators from diverse backgrounds.

Discrimination of any kind or intolerance of any level has no place within Clemson Athletics, whether on the field, in the classroom, in the locker room or in the stands.

Dan Radakovich Letter on Diversity and Inclusion


“We should no longer expect them, or our players, to hear our cheers if we do not hear their cries.”

Clemson Athletics is committed to providing an environment conducive to equal access and participation for student-athletes, staff and supporters of all gender identities and sexual orientations.
