Creative Inquiry

Support Creative Inquiry

More than 250 Creative Inquiry teams are active at Clemson now.

Creative Inquiry is Clemson's unique brand of undergraduate research. In Creative Inquiry, undergraduate students work in teams with each other, members of the faculty and other mentors to tackle problems springing from their own curiosity, a professor's challenge or a real world need. It is the kind of engagement that is often found only in graduate programs. Students take ownership, pose questions, test theories and discover solutions. Creative Inquiry creates leaders, thinkers and entrepreneurs.

 

Sponsor a Project

Does your business or industry have a project that would benefit from the creative minds of Clemson students? If so, consider sponsoring a Creative Inquiry team. You can suggest new Creative Inquiry projects or extensions of existing projects. Your sponsorship will be credited as a gift to Clemson University /Creative Inquiry and your company name will appear on the webpage for that project. Project costs vary but generally start at $5,000 per semester.
