“I can be in a class with 20 English majors, and we all have different career goals. My first internship was with the Pearce Center as a communications intern. Through that, I was co-editor of the English majors newsletter, and I worked on the [“Call My Name: African Americans in Early Clemson University History”] project.”

Recruiting and supporting diverse Tigers

Each day at Clemson offers new opportunities to learn from people with differing perspectives, talents and dreams. We’re recruiting, connecting and championing a diverse student body by establishing college access pipelines for underrepresented populations in South Carolina and plugging all of our students into the on-campus programs and services that will see them through graduation and beyond.

More than 31 on-campus programs and initiatives support a culture that celebrates diversity and prioritizes inclusivity at Clemson, earning us INSIGHT Into Diversity’s Higher Education Excellence in Diversity (HEED) award.

Groups such as the CONNECTIONS Living-Learning Community and Renaissance MAN, departments such as the Office of Inclusion and Equity and the Harvey and Lucinda Gantt Multicultural Center, organizations such as the National Pan-Hellenic Council and Multicultural Greek Council Chapters, and programs like PEER and WISE help our students thrive academically and socially.

Emerging Scholars and Tiger Alliance are two programs through which students from South Carolina’s economically disadvantaged areas and African American, Latino and Hispanic young men are empowered to pursue higher education with academic enrichment services, mentorship and more.

“Get involved. I heard that going in and kind of shrugged it off, but you have to! You will meet so many great people if you just look. I don’t think people understand how many people have the same interests as you.”
