Clemson Cooperative Extension Service

Clemson Extension helps improve the quality of life of all South Carolinians by providing unbiased, research-based information through an array of public outreach programs in youth development; agribusiness; agriculture; food, nutrition and health; and natural resources. With offices in all 46 counties of the state, Extension works to help support South Carolina’s $42 billion agriculture and forestry industries; strengthen families and communities; improve stewardship of natural resources and the environment; strengthen connections between people and their food; and expose South Carolina youth to opportunities in agriculture, science, technology, engineering and math.

We improve the economy, environment, and well-being of South Carolinians through the delivery of unbiased, research-based information and education.

Guiding Principles

As Clemson Cooperative Extension works to fulfill our vision and mission, a set of seven fundamental principles guide our decisions. We believe that these guiding principles are more than just words - they are our North Star. We all own them. They embody the unified culture we expect; the spirit of unity we have, and our sincere dedication to doing what's right for each other, for our Clients and for Clemson University.  They are the foundation of what makes Clemson unique – the purpose, the power, and the privilege of being a Clemson Tiger.
