As a “niche” area of Clemson University’s Automotive and Transportation Technology emphasis area, CU-IGRSS is a research institute affiliated with the College of Engineering and Science and the office of the Vice President of Research. The Institute is the safety research and education component of the Clemson University International Center for Automotive Research. In 2002, CU-IGRSS was approved as a new program for Clemson University by the South Carolina Commission on Higher Education.

The interdisciplinary community of CU-IGRSS researchers produces knowledge that leads to new and more effective ways of improving the safety of the automotive and transportation environment by developing evidence-based countermeasures and products. The institute's unique structure addresses complex and interconnected challenges of the future of automotive transportation safety where it is no longer possible for these issues to be solved in a single discipline or profession.
