GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Clemson University is getting a $1 million donation from the founders of the marketing and advertising firm Erwin Penland to establish a center for communication studies.

Clemson President James Barker says the gift from Joe and Gretchen Erwin will set up the Erwin Center for the Study of Advertising and Communication.

The gift provides for five new courses that focus on advertising and communication.

Many of the courses are being taught in collaboration with associates at Erwin Penland, which is a 400-person agency with offices in Greenville, New York and Detroit.

The university's communications studies department includes focus on sports, law and health communication.
