    Keynote Speaker: Dan Radakovich 
    Named the 13th director of athletics in Clemson history on Dec. 1, 2012, Dan Radakovich has continuously led the Tiger athletic department to high achievements both on the field and in the classroom while developing significant upgrades in finance and facilities.


    By nearly every measure, Dan Radakovich led Clemson to one of the best athletic years in school history in 2015-16. With a Fall semester featuring berths in the national championship games in both football and men’s soccer and Spring ACC championships in men’s golf and baseball, the Tigers recorded their highest finish in the Learfield Director’s Cup in a decade. In the classroom, 78 student-athletes earned degrees and, while competing for national titles, both football and men’s soccer recorded record GPAs. Clemson’s Graduation Success Rate and Academic Progress Rate continue to be among the nation’s best as football, men’s basketball and women’s golf were recognized among the top 10 percent nationally in APR, with football earning the distinction for the sixth-consecutive year.


    Since his arrival in December 2012, the athletic department has received approval for $176 million in facility improvements and increased spending on direct student-athlete development programs including nutrition, mental health and professional development by $2.4 million. His department has increased overall revenue from $69 million in fiscal year 2014 to a budgeted $99.7 million in fiscal year 2017 which we believe is a great model of this year’s theme Investing For The Future.
