SC State University 1890 Research & Extension Program

SC State University 1890 Research & Extension is among several organizations and businesses to join the City of Charleston in its efforts to revitalize the area where the former Cooper River bridges once touched down, near Cooper and Meeting streets. The 1890 Program has plans to develop an outreach community center, where extension educators will offer GED classes, nutrition education, youth-oriented programs, agriculture-related workshops and other programs and services relevant to the community needs. Development of the center will further enhance the existing services and programs that 1890 Extension provides to businesses, families and individuals in Charleston. Report of the community center was published Aug. 30 in the Charleston Post and Courier’s “Bridge-area makeover in slow lane: College plans community outreach center.”

The 1890 Research & Extension Program will provide updates on the development of the center as they become available.
