Today, Claflin continues to welcome exemplary students of all races and genders who demonstrate a passion to change not only their own circumstances, but to change the world as well.

We believe that most leaders are made, not born. Furthermore, we believe that students with passion, integrity and a willingness to work hard have an innate capacity to become visionary leaders. As a Claflin student, you be challenged to realize your full potential, leaving here with an unparalleled education that will serve you well in graduate school, in a career – and in life.
