COVID-19 and the University: up-to-date information and links

Clemson University continues to hold institution-wide communications about institutional continuity as the emerging global COVID-19  situation unfolds. Read the University’s most current information at COVID-19 Updates.

Clemson University was founded in 1889 with a singular vision: to be a “high seminary of learning” to benefit the public good. Since that time, Clemson University has evolved and matured into a leading, modern land-grant university. However, we’ve never lost our focus on the reason we exist: to make the world — for all people — a better place through the power of education, creativity, curiosity and scholarship. 

With nearly 6,000 students in 130-plus graduate and professional degree programs, Clemson University’s faculty and students are reimagining the world we live in, even as you read this.
