Sample of licensed clothingCommercial Use of Marks

The demand by Clemson University students, alumni and friends for products depicting a University trademark, logo or symbol has reached new heights. Almost 550 manufacturers are licensed today for commercial use of the marks. As a result, Clemson University manages a licensing program to ensure that the public properly identifies and associates University logos on products bearing the institutional marks.

The Clemson University licensing program is designed to protect the integrity and ensure the proper use of the University name and logos. In order to administer the program, Clemson has established formal licensing procedures that will allow the institution to benefit from the commercial use of both the registered names and symbols.

The Clemson University licensing program is also designed to establish a cooperative relationship with licensees to assist in developing a marketplace demand for “Officially Licensed Clemson Products.” The marketing strategy drives the consumer to purchase products that directly support the institution. The end result is a mutually beneficial partnership.
