The Clemson AIAS endeavors to promote mentorship, professionalism, civic engagement and supplemental educational opportunities to the students of Clemson University School of Architecture. By actively seeking out and collaborating with complimentary organizations, both within the field of architecture and beyond, the Clemson AIAS strives to create a well-rounded citizen architect. We mentor our membership by facilitating peer-to-peer learning through our Studio Culture Initiative, by engaging our devoted architectural alumni via the Clemson Advancement Foundation for design+build and our close relationship with state and local AIA. We promote professionalism through our interaction with stakeholders in the built environment with lectures and other social events. We engage our community through Freedom by Design, a national AIAS program that provides architectural students the opportunity to address the needs of disabled individuals through design+build, and by crossing the aisle to other student groups to accomplish institutional goals beyond the reach for any single organization. We supplement our educational experience by hosting workshops and professionals in the field to further bridge the gap between academia and practice. In this manner we are a dynamic and responsive voice for our members and for the realm of architecture as a whole.
