This thread is dedicated to discussion about the growing partnership between the City of Greenville and Clemson University. I do not know the details of every connection between the two entities, but the relationship is strong and the economic impact is significant.

When the 'One' project construction is complete, Clemson University will own more than 100,000 square feet of space in Downtown Greenville. The school is currently considering transferring more graduate programs to Greenville and the initial feedback is very supportive of the idea.

CU-ICAR has proven its significance as a magnet for high tech and automotive research activity.

Other collaboration is seen in the medical industry.

Considering that other areas are growing faster, these numbers as presented don't make sense. Not sure how Clemson is defining these numbers but, some clarification is needed. Just for reference as to why I think they are out of line, Charlotte creates 16-20k jobs annually and is growing at twice the rate of Greeenville, again, not sure what Clemson is trying to define. Anyone have an idea?

The article says nothing about those being "jobs created in 2010," other than the 6,165 jobs in Greenville County.

In your link, the quote says generated 21,566 jobs. Maybe they are using a play on words and mean supported, that is why I asked. I would be curious to see how Clemson is responsible for creating the majority of jobs in Greenville county, that seems high. Would Proterra's numbers be inluded?

I don't see the issue. I read that as the university employs 21k people in the upstate and 25k total. It doesn't say generated "new" jobs.
