Clemson is the latest to add a diversity to its resume.
The school has been making waves since its hiring of interim president, Katie Mack, in September.
It recently announced hiring a woman as its first female vice president of human resources.
But the hiring of a female director of human resource is a new addition, as the school’s new VP of Human Resources, Mary D. Wray, is also a former employee.
“Our goal is to create a diverse and inclusive environment where all people can thrive, regardless of their background or experience,” Wray said in a statement.
“As such, we are thrilled to be adding a new Director of Human Resource, Mary Wray to the ranks of our staff.
Mary will bring a wealth of experience and talent to the position.”
She will take over for former president and VP of human services, Jim McAllister, who left the job in February to pursue a new role.
“I’m proud to be the Vice President of Human Relations at Clemson University,” Waleys’ statement read.
“The job is challenging and I’m excited to be joining this exciting new chapter at Clemson.
I am honored to join the team at Clemson and look forward to bringing the best ideas to our faculty, students, and community members.”
