Erwin Center for Brand Communications

Advancing Diversity & Inclusion in Brand Communications

Bringing together top students, industry leaders, and dedicated mentors, the Erwin Center DIVE IN program (previously Summer Scholars) is a week-long immersive brand communication academy dedicated to advancing diversity in brand communications through enhancing the skills and abilities of our nation's future brand leaders.

The DIVE IN program is an experience that bridges the scholarly and professional landscapes for college students interested in pursuing careers in branding, advertising, marketing, public relations, and communications. The DIVE IN program emerged out of a growing need to diversify the advertising and brand leadership space and through the concerted efforts of the Erwin Center, Clemson University and our sponsors, we are making that happen.
