The Institute for Parks at Clemson University provides a comprehensive program of research, education, training and outreach that enhances the management of the world’s parks and protected areas, while concurrently increasing the global public’s understanding of the natural, cultural and recreational value of these treasured resources. It accomplishes this by:
providing research to inform more effective and efficient management decisions;
increasing individual and institutional capacity through transformative leadership education and training programs;
connecting the global park community and delivering just-in-time knowledge through an innovative Internet network — The Open Parks Network; and
promoting the relevance of parks and protected areas to a rapidly changing, multicultural, global society.
