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.
