Alumni Distinguished Professor

Now is your opportunity to become part of Clemson Thinks2 by participating in the second Clemson Thinks2 Faculty Institute. We are seeking faculty members who will develop a CT2 seminar. Seminars may be interdisciplinary or disciplinary-based courses. Modifications of existing courses as well as new courses may be proposed. Our goals are to develop a community of critical thinking scholars on campus, to provide our second-year students with a seminar that intentionally teaches critical thinking, and to measure their progress.  Institute participants will receive $2500 that may be used towards summer salary or deposited into a personal development account.

Clemson Thinks2 is the name given to Clemson’s Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) that is now a requirement for SACSCOC accreditation.  More details, including expected Institute outcomes, an application form as well as our entire QEP and a short video describing our goals may be found on our website at www.clemson.edu/thinks.

The dates for the Institute are June 16 and 17; 19 and 20 all day sessions and a half-day session on August 7.  An Institute agenda will soon be posted on our website.
