Clemson University strongly encourages its students to participate in study abroad programs as part of their overall academic experience. Study abroad serves as a vital part of a student’s academic, professional and personal growth. Faculty members play an essential role in encouraging and advising students to participate in study abroad. Faculty-directed programs are a particularly important means of encouraging our students to study abroad and of ensuring the academic quality and integrity of programming.
