CofC Honors in England and Wales

What: Dr. Folds-Bennett and Dr. John Newell will be leading a three-week Honors course that looks at British culture from Roman Britain to the present day, examining the interaction between history, architecture, literature, and the creation of myth, how the zeitgeist of the era influences everything around it. The goal of the course is to enable students to understand the psychology behind the creation and recreation of myths to meet the needs of a particular time, and to help them see that what many people think happens is often at least as important as what actually happened. Students will enroll in HONS 381: Imagining an Island Kingdom and also have the option to enroll in HONS 398: Independent Study. The first week will be held in Charleston, with the second and third weeks held in England and Wales.

When: June 4 – June 10 in Charleston, June 11 – June 28 in England and Wales

Cost: Program fee (not including tuition) is $4,790, but is subject to change.

The course’s syllabus can be found here.

ECOllective Student Project Committee (ESPC)

Each semester, students pay $10 as a Green Tax as part of their tuition that will end up in a large fund to be governed by the ECOllective Student Project Committee (ESPC), a committee headed by an intern at the Office of Sustainability.

Students from any major can apply for a grant through ESPC for up to $5,000 to be used for any sustainability-related initiative, such as research, implementation of sustainable equipment, or expenses related to event planning. Grants are approved or denied by a committee of 5-9 students from multiple backgrounds. Duties include attending meetings regularly, providing feedback to the committee chair, serving as a case manager to help proposers through the grant writing process, and communicating via email with other committee members.

We are currently accepting applications for both grant proposals and committee members. This committee meets once or twice a month, depending on the volume of proposals, and turns over in the spring semester. This is a great opportunity to add both grant writing and professional experience to your resume as well as get your foot in the door at the Office of Sustainability.

For more information, please visit the Office of Sustainability’s website or contact Trevor Leach at
