Research, Scholarship & Thought Leadership Ignite Innovation
Our research and scholarship environment stretches boundaries across disciplines and ignites the Clarkson mindset to rigorously question the status quo and push the limits of what is known. At our intellectual core, research expands our base of knowledge and thought leadership; and innovation harnesses these results into sustainable solutions and impact. By changing the idea of what a university can be, Clarkson excels at bringing all of this together on a scale that is not happening in the same way, anywhere else in the country to create tangible commercial value, entrepreneurial growth, and benefit to society.
