The research Clemson University is conducting in sustainability is broad and continuing to grow. Our expertise in alternative energy technologies, water resources, sustainable agriculture, the built environment, and the natural environment come together to address the challenges of today and tomorrow. Clemson faculty, staff, and students form collaborative partnerships through these Clemson research institutions:
- Baruch Institute of Coastal Ecology and Forest Science
- The Clemson Institute for Environmental Toxicology
- The South Carolina Institute for Energy Studies
- The Restoration Institute
- Center for Nuclear Environmental Engineering Sciences and Radioactive Waste Management
- The Clemson University International Center for Automotive Research (CU-ICAR)
- Institute for Sustainability (IfS)
The Creative Inquiry program offers a unique combination of engaged learning and research that is tailored specifically to undergraduate students. There are numerous long-term projects relating to sustainability that cover a wide range of topics. Students work in teams under a faculty member to tackle complex problems while at the same time expanding their curiosity and forming useful solutions.
