With national championships and top 25 academic rankings, Clemson University is known for its excellence on the field and in the classroom and research lab. The Robert H. Brooks Sports Science Institute seeks to marry these areas of excellence through the academic study of sport sciences. 

Thanks to the generosity of the late Robert H. Brooks ’60, the institute began in the 1990s with an emphasis on motorsports engineering, sports communication, sports management and sports marketing. Its support for motorsports engineering was a leading factor in the creation of the renowned Clemson University International Center for Automotive Research (CU-ICAR).

Today, the institute supports research and scholarships as well as Legacy Professors named for Brooks’ son and three colleagues who died in a 1993 plane crash. It is an effort that is growing and evolving with the addition of research seed grants, a lecture series and other initiatives. 

Clemson University undertakes this mission out of deep respect for Robert H. Brooks and as testimony to his love for Clemson University and his love for sports.
