Academic Excellence

In this Section


Clarkson University produces exceptional graduates, and the powerful combination of leading-edge research and dedicated teaching makes this possible.  We depend on our faculty to excel inside and outside the classroom - as innovators in their respective disciplines and as superior teachers who engage and inspire their students, as leaders and mentors.

Academic excellence is measured in countless ways at Clarkson.  Our metrics for progress in this E2E Campaign priority come in the form of the creation of new Professorships and Chairs, sponsored research, and gifts targeted to a specific school, department, program or center at Clarkson.

We must continue to invest in our faculty by demonstrating an institutional commitment to the highest standards of scholarly performance.  Clarkson needs your support to recruit and retain distinguished teachers and researchers who are among the most prominent and capable.

Throughout the Wallace H. Coulter School of Engineering, the School of Business, and the School of Arts & Sciences, we continue to enhance the academic programs available to our students and to broaden and improve the faculty who teach them.
