As a major research university with an enrollment of over 23,000 and employing over 5,000 faculty and staff, Clemson University has a substantial economic impact on the state of South Carolina. This impact extends beyond the Upstate region where the main campus is located, with economic effects observed throughout the state.

Over the past decade, the university has expanded its presence in the Lowcountry region by adding activities and forming partnerships in Charleston, South Carolina. These include the Wind Turbine Drive Train Test Facility and a new Graduate Education Center in North Charleston, the Architecture program in downtown Charleston, and a partnership with the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston.

Please join us for a guest webinar presentation on Wednesday, May 10, 2017 by¬†Rob Carey, Ph.D., director of the Regional Economic Analysis Laboratory at Clemson’s main campus, who will present an analysis¬†using REMI PI+ of Clemson’s economic impact in Charleston associated with this expansion of the university’s presence.

The analysis includes capital investment in the construction of new facilities as well as renovation/rehabilitation of historic buildings, the impact of operational expenditures, and student spending in the region.
