The CAF has a three-fold mission. We own and operate the Charles E. Daniel Center for Building Research + Urban Studies in Genoa, Italy. We provide a forum for interaction between students and practitioners. And we offer support for programs and initiatives proposed by students, faculty members and academic leaders. Through these endeavors we strive to enhance the environment for teaching, research and public service that is vital to the mission of the School of Design + Building.
In the face of dwindling state support, we turn more and more to our alumni and friends, inviting you to reconnect with the School by offering both specific and unrestricted donations that help fund this wonderful variety of “ideas and adventures.” Please consider a generous yet comfortable gift to the CAF. In doing so, let me know if there is anything I can do to direct your donation in a way that addresses your interests.
Better yet, why not plan to pay a visit to Clemson in the near future? I’d love to have the chance to show you around the newly renovated + expanded Lee Hall. I think you’ll like what we’ve done with the place!
