Clemmer College's Departments and Centers of Excellence


Welcome to Clemmer College

Students of The Clemmer College at East Tennessee State University can pursue ten undergraduate and 16 graduate degree programs, as well as doctorate programs in Early Childhood Education, Educational Leadership & Policy Analysis, and Sport, Exercise, Recreation, and Kinesiology departments. The College programs are accredited by the National Council of Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE), Tennessee Department of Education, Council for Accreditation of Counseling & Related Education Programs (CACREP), the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC), and the National Association of Sport Physical Education (NASPE). Visit our College Data and Reports page for more information. 

The college is named for Claudius G. Clemmer, a former teacher, successful business and civic leader, and lifelong benefactor and champion for education. During the Great Depression, with no money to support his one-room schoolhouse in Greene County, Clemmer taught his 30 students without pay so they could continue their studies. Scholarships established by Clemmer and his wife, Katherine, continue to support new generations of education students who will carry the same dedication to service into their own professional careers.

The faculty and staff of the Clemmer College welcome you to our website and are happy to help you in your educational journey. Please contact us if we can be of assistance with questions about our programs and how you can be a part of the Clemmer Community.
