Message From the Dean

Golden Knights make a difference. Nowhere is this more apparent than in the stories featured below. Whether volunteering, improving the well-being of canines and humans through innovative safety tests, or elevating the body of knowledge in the fields of rocketry or biometrics, the Clarkson community embodies our values of caring, service and vision. I could not be more proud. 

— Bill Jemison, Dean of the Wallace H. Coulter School of Engineering / Tony Collins Professor of Innovative Engineering Culture
