Below: Advisors from several programs chat during a coffee break. NSP hosts inaugural professional meeting Thanks to the support of President James F. Barker and Provost Dori Helms, Clemson and the National Scholars Program hosted the first-ever meeting of college scholars and scholarships program administrators, June 6 to 7, 2007. The meeting, held at the Madren Center at Clemson, brought together faculty and staff who administer the programs and scholarships responsible for bringing top students to their campuses. Topics discussed at the summer meeting included devising successful recruiting and selection processes and developing meaningful programs for scholars in the programs, both on and off campus. Additionally, the group made plans for a 2008 meeting, to be held at NC State, as well as developing a more formal professional association. More than two dozen profes- sionals from 18 programs attended, representing Duke, East Tennessee State, Georgia Tech, Indiana, NC State, UNC-Chapel Hill, USC, UT-Dallas, Vanderbilt, and William & Mary.
