Institutional Alignment

'True North' Alignment and an Easier Way to Work

Clemson’s colleges and divisions will align their goals and prioritize their work to advance the three pillars of Clemson Elevate. The Office of Institutional Excellence is instrumental in facilitating this alignment and can assist in developing plans that integrate strategic planning and risk awareness, as well as providing continuous improvement and project management support, consulting, templates and other tools.

Once you know where you are going, it’s important to have cutting-edge tools, metrics and data at your fingertips to help you make great decisions. Clemson Works supports the University’s people and processes by creating easier, faster workflows for many HR or Finance tasks, such as submitting leave requests, approving new hires, etc.
