Faculty and Staff
On August 6, the US Department of State (DOS) and Center for Disease Control (CDC) have removed their worldwide travel advisories, restoring the earlier country-by-county level rating system. This announcement does not change university policy prohibiting international travel until further notice. The DOS and CDC continue to advise against international travel and have kept most countries at the highest advisory level.
Clemson University strongly encourages its students to participate in study abroad programs as part of their overall academic experience. Study abroad serves as a vital part of a student’s academic, professional and personal growth. Faculty members play an essential role in encouraging and advising students to participate in study abroad. Faculty-directed programs are a particularly important means of encouraging our students to study abroad and of ensuring the academic quality and integrity of programming.
During the 2016/17 academic year, 50% of Clemson study abroad students participated in a faculty-directed study abroad program.
