Open letter to President and the Congress

August 9, 2013

Clemson President James Barker and 164 other university presidents and chancellors called on leaders in Washington to increase investment in research and education and close the “innovation deficit.” In an open letter to President Obama and Congress, the presidents and chancellors wrote that closing the widening gap between needed and actual investments in research and education is a national imperative. They said investments lead to innovation and new technologies that power the nation’s economy, create jobs, and reduce the budget deficit while ensuring the U-S keeps its role as global leader.
