Clemson's Departments of Forestry and Environmental Conservation (FEC) and Agricultural and Environmental Sciences (AES), part of the College of Agriculture, Forestry, and Life Sciences (CAFLS), is home to the foundational vision expressed in founder Thomas Green Clemson’s last will and testament dated August 14, 1883 creating a scientific institute which would help the citizens of South Carolina prosper by providing teaching, research and extension in the areas of agricultural and natural sciences.
Over 100 years later, our mission remains to provide unified education, research and public service programs that address public needs in agriculture and natural resources by providing excellence in instruction, scientific inquiry and outreach to citizens of South Carolina, the nation, and the world.
