As a land-grant university, Clemson is part of a national system created by the U.S. Congress to improve the quality of life for citizens in every state through teaching, research and outreach. While faculty members teach Clemson students, the university's statewide network of Public Service Activities (PSA) conducts research and outreach programs to improve the quality of life for citizens in South Carolina. Clemson PSA programs, including Clemson Extension, develop and deliver impartial science-based information in five areas that align with the national land-grant university system and touch the life of every South Carolinian. Those areas are: Agrisystems productivity and profitability, Economic and community development, Environmental conservation, Food safety and nutrition, and Youth development and families.
