Transforming Education

The College of Education is a transformative leader in improving education – from birth through adulthood. With a particular focus on underserved schools and communities, the college has award-winning programs that:

  • prepare teachers, school counselors and school leaders
  • prepare counselors for community practice
  • train higher education student affairs leaders
  • prepare training and development specialists for business and industry.

We equip our students for careers and lives that make a difference, and we work tirelessly to develop initiatives that respond to today's educational landscape  including teacher recruitment and retention, online teaching, and leadership development. We participate in these innovative efforts as part of Clemson's land-grant mission to serve the state of South Carolina and beyond.
