Located in a fantastic setting overlooking the Cooper River, the approximately 70,000-square-foot Zucker Family Graduate Education Center fosters collaboration and innovation in a place where students, university faculty and staff, and private industry interact on a daily basis. The center opened in August 2016 and is located on the Clemson University Restoration Institute (CURI) Innovation Campus in North Charleston. You can view the grounds here: WEBCAM.
The Zucker Family Graduate Education Center houses high-tech classrooms equipped with the latest technology, collaboration spaces and conference rooms, laboratory and studio spaces, and more. Convenient and free parking is available under the building. The Zucker Family Graduate Education Center is only 15 minutes from downtown and the airport and is convenient to I-26, I-526, Mt. Pleasant and Summerville.
Charleston businesswoman and philanthropist Anita Zucker and her family made a $5 million gift to Clemson's Will to Lead campaign to help build the Zucker Family Graduate Education Center at the Clemson University Restoration Institute (CURI) on the former Navy base in North Charleston. Graduate programs at the Center support the growing technical workforce in the area and enable working professionals to get career-advancing degrees without leaving the Lowcountry.
"Creating a workforce with the right skills is fundamental to the state’s success and its economic vitality. Centers like this will help place South Carolina at the forefront of innovation."
The Zucker family gift is one of the largest in Clemson’s The Will to Lead capital campaign, which aims to raise $600 million to support Clemson students and faculty with scholarships, professorships, facilities, technology and enhanced opportunities for learning and research.
