Giving to Global Engagement

Why Give?

Your donation to support Global Engagement at Clemson is an investment in the preparation of our students for success in the now global workplace and the attention of our scholars and students to addressing the global challenges facing society in the 21st Century.

Help us to prepare students for the Global Economy; The US Department of Commerce reports that direct foreign investment accounts for some 127,500 jobs in South Carolina. That’s as many as 8.4% of the state’s private industry employment. Our graduates need to be prepared to contribute to, and succeed in, this globalizing workforce. Your support will help our students learn languages, gain intercultural skills and experience, and learn how their fields are organized and practiced around the world. Our goal is to educate global leaders in industry, commerce and science.

Support us as we address Grand Challenges; whether the focus is water & energy, public health & education, poverty & food access, or violence & state security, the grand challenges of the 21st century are all global in nature. They impact us all and solutions are unlikely without collaboration of the world’s scientists and leaders. Your support will help our students and scholars to work collaboratively with peers around the world, to explore solutions to the challenges that plague us here at home and others around the world. You can help us bring scholars here and to build the networks and infrastructure to facilitate collaboration.

Understanding international issues is no longer a luxury but a necessity. Help our students to make the world a better place!

Thank you for your investment in the global future of Clemson students.
