College Priorities

Pursuing Greatness

Pursuing Greatness

We are Pursuing Greatness

None of us can predict the potential unleashed when someone first stares into an electron microscope, sees her sketches transformed into a shelter, hears his first engine design roar to life or watches a patient walk again. Nor can we predict the impact on our economy, our state and ultimately, our world.

Today Clemson finds itself in the enviable position of being poised and ready for even more. We are pursuing greatness. We are furthering success. We are transforming ourselves into one of the nation's best public institutions.


Educating leaders, critical thinkers and global citizens.
• Scholarships for Undergraduate Students
• Fellowships for Graduate Students

Engaged Students

Providing students with internships, co-op experiences, service learning, global study, unique programs and research.
• Study Abroad
• Creative Inquiry
• Undergraduate Research
• Programs for Educational Enrichment and Retention (PEER)

Improving our on-campus facilities to provide the best environment for our faculty and students is critical. We can accomplish this goal by adding new space and upgrading what is currently in place. Specific opportunities include:
• Engineering Welcome/IDEaS Center
• Earle Hall Polymer Wing
• Lowry Renovation & Expansion
• Olin Renovation

We are improving the Clemson Experience by recruiting, retaining and rewarding outstanding faculty.
• Professorships
• Endowed Chairs

Unrestricted Giving

Discretionary funds allow the College to direct resources to critical areas and urgent projects.
