April is Research & Innovation Month: Submit your events

April is Research + Innovation Month (RIM) at Clemson. During the entire month of April, RIM showcases the research and scholarly activity of faculty, staff, and students university-wide, on both the main campus and at Clemson’s innovation campuses. This year’s celebration promises to be particularly exciting with the university’s new designation as a Carnegie R1 – Doctoral University – Highest Research Activity.

RIM provides everyone the opportunity to showcase their research via interactive posters, energetic presentations, lively performances, awe-inspiring art, sculpture, and models. Everyone is encouraged to participate! Marquee events for this year’s RIM include:

  • Team Science Workshop featuring Dr. Michelle Bennett, Deputy Scientific Director for the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute of the National Institutes of Health
  • Graduate Research and Discovery Forum (GRADS) and Three-Minute Thesis Competition
  • Focus on Creative Inquiry
  • Grant Application Workshop presented by the National Endowment for the Humanities
  • Fulbright Scholar Program presentation by the Council for International Exchange of Scholars

You can participate

Does your program have an annual wrap-up or display event in April that you would like to include on the RIM calendar? It might be a poster session, symposium, performance, exhibition, or any other format displaying research and scholarly accomplishments. Please visit to add your event to the RIM calendar!

Research + Innovation Month is sponsored by Creative Inquiry, Undergraduate Studies, The Graduate School, The Division of Research, and The Watt Family Innovation Center.
