Clark took his office seriously and performed his duties in great earnest. He adopted a fairly stern approach to the escapades of young men at Illinois. Automobiles, alcohol, and cheating were cardinal sins in his view and typically grounds for expulsion. However, Clark often was willing to forgive the repentant and students who were discharged were often able to return to complete their studies if they acknowledged the errors of their ways. Clark also had a soft spot for young men who were limited in their means and opportunities.

In particular, Clark’s manipulation of the fraternity members and fraternity chapters on the Illinois campus was very successful. In many respects, it was a mutually satisfactory relationship. Through Dean Clark, the fraternity men had a staunch and abiding ally against the antifraternity forces such as faculty, other administrators, women, religious groups, or even non-fraternity students.
