Featured Initiatives


The mission of the Clemson University Men of Color National Summit is to close the achievement gap for African-American and Hispanic males, from cradle to career. The summit brings together approximately 2,000 high school and college students, business professionals, educators, government officials and community leaders from around the country.

Tiger Alliance

Knowledge is power. Clemson University is taking bold steps to help empower, enlighten and develop African-American and Hispanic males. As part of the Men of Color summit, we have introduced a high school component called Tiger Alliance, which includes and involves African-American and Hispanic males from the local area.

Emerging Scholars

The Clemson Emerging Scholars Program helps students from South Carolina’s I-95 Corridor learn what it takes to go to college. We concentrate on academic preparation, leadership skills and the college application process. Students not only stay on Clemson’s campus several times throughout the program but we work with students in their schools and community.
