College Priorities

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.
