  • 2007:Clifton S.M. “Chip” Egan has been named interim dean for Clemson University’s College of Architecture, Arts and Humanities. He will serve a two-year term while the university conducts a national search for a permanent dean. Egan built his academic reputation through the performing arts, but his long association with Clemson University includes numerous leadership positions and cross-disciplinary projects. Hired in 1976 as an assistant professor in the English department’s theater program, Egan chaired the performing arts department for nine years. He also served as interim chairman for the department of communication studies and the English department. Egan retired in 2004 and spent two years on the road pursuing a career in free-lance theater. The adventure took Egan around the country, but Clemson lured him back last fall to serve a year as interim chairman for the English department. Egan said he hopes to use his term to position the college for a successful search for a permanent dean. “The College of Architecture, Arts and Humanities is at the very core of Clemson’s dramatic rise in quality and stature,” he said. “Our college generates many of the most creative initiatives on the campus and establishes much of Clemson’s intellectual climate. I am honored to serve as interim dean.” University President James F. Barker said, "Chip Egan is an outstanding teacher and leader at Clemson. His skills in collaboration will serve the College and its professions well." Egan takes over the job held for the last six years by Janice Schach, who resigned in August to return to a full-time faculty position.
