About the College of Agriculture, Forestry and Life Sciences

The College of Agriculture, Forestry and Life Sciences embodies founder Thomas Green Clemson’s vision of a “high seminary of learning” focused on improving the lives of South Carolinians through education and outreach in the agricultural and natural sciences.

Today CAFLS curricula explore plant, animal, human, molecular, and packaging sciences, and build upon Clemson University’s world-class academic, research and extension activities to produce scientific discoveries of global significance and graduates prepared to be leaders in their chosen fields.

CAFLS remains grounded in the fundamental principle that Clemson University is committed by its land-grant legacy to ensure that higher education remains a public good, and that land-grant colleges link their expertise to the needs of the people.
