Institute for Global Road Safety & Security

image alt text

The Clemson University Institute for Global Road Safety and Security (CU-IGRSS) is a research-based interdisciplinary Institute focused on the critical human-vehicle-road interface. CU-IGRSS brings together nationally and internationally recognized researchers, educators, and government and corporate partners to improve road safety and security. The institute's unique structure addresses complex and interconnected challenges facing the future of road safety and security where it is no longer possible for these issues to be solved in a single discipline or profession. An Advancement Board (IGRSS-AB) advises and assists the faculty and staff of IGRSS to meet mission-critical objectives both for the Institute and Clemson University. For example, IGRSS and Clemson have taken our commitment to saving lives and changing futures to the next level through the creation of a brand-new Master of Transportation Safety Administration (MTSA) graduate degree, a program unlike any other in the US.
