Clark Carter

Hello, I am Clark Carter, the Dean of Students here at Charleston Southern University.  I am a proud alum of CSU ('87). I have been serving at the university since 2002. I was the Campus Minister here for nine years before becoming the Dean of Students in the Fall of 2011.

Our staff in the Student Services Department is here to serve you and your student. Through Christ-centered leadership, Student Services provides the CSU community with opportunities to grow spiritually, intellectually, emotionally, and physically. 

The Student Services Department is a large department comprised of Campus Ministries, Counseling Services, Civic Engagement, The Career Center, Life Skills, Campus Recreation, Campus Activities, Residence Life and Security

If we can serve you in anyway, please do not hesitate to contact someone on our staff.
