A college experience is a part of growing up...

The ClemsonLIFE program at Clemson University is designed for students with intellectual disabilities who desire a postsecondary experience on a college campus.

We Believe...

  • That all young adults go through a similar development process that requires certain activities, experience and support. 
  • That all young adults must develop skills and an understanding about themselves and the world around them in order to fully participate in society and to become successful, contributing adults. 
  • That higher education is a vehicle for self-empowerment and access to social networks, employment, and independence. 
  • That group membership provides essential motivation and support for learning and participation in community life.

Our Mission...

The mission of the ClemsonLIFE Program at Clemson University is to provide a coordinated course of study that includes career exploration and preparation along with self-awareness, discovery, and personal improvement through a framework of courses, job internships, and community participation.
