    The Joseph F. Sullivan Center has performed health outreach in rural communities on behalf of Clemson University for nearly four decades, but the growth in the work our college does in the area of rural health is no longer limited to what a single center can do. Leadership in our college now envisions the Sullivan Center among many as a spoke on a wheel. The hub of that wheel is a new, comprehensive infrastructure of programs and services dubbed Clemson Rural Health, which will act as an organizing framework for health service delivery and clinics as well as collaborative work involving health outreach and community development projects. Learn more about our expanding outreach efforts and to hear the personal stories of those involved and those who have benefitted from the work we’ve done.

  • App created by Clemson researcher uses photos of dead bodies, roadkill to help forensic teams determine time of death
    Michael Staton | August 17, 2020

    A new smartphone app developed by a Clemson researcher is designed to aid coroners and forensic teams in determining time of death by improving the understanding of body decomposition. The app allows users to enter observations, photos and other information related to geography and crime scene data when uncovering human or animal remains. After years of use, app developers hope the data collected will allow a near-instant estimate of time of death in the field.

    When four South Carolina universities established a cooperative pathway to a Doctor of Education (Ed.D.) in education systems improvement science at Clemson University, they did so with the intention of seeing the program’s alumni quickly make positive, measurable impacts in education across the state. Fortunately, what they intended is already happening before the first cohort member has even graduated from the program. This kind of immediate productivity from students was inevitable when many of them are already working as administrators and leaders in the field of education. This particular brand of doctoral program hinges on institutions’ ability to make a program as applied as possible, so it should come as no surprise that they’re wasting no time putting lessons learned to use in their respective workplaces.
