Attend former Charleston mayor Joe Riley’s course on International African American Museum

This spring Citadel professor and former Charleston mayor Joeseph P. Riley, Jr. is teaching a new course that is open to the public. The course is titled “Why and How: The Making of the International African American Museum”. The class takes place on Tuesdays from 3:30-5pm in various locations and features different guest speakers.

The course aims to be as much a study of history learned through the culmination of decades of work by church historians, genealogists, and storytellers as it is a business case study of what goes into taking on a major public project of this kind.

See full course schedule here.

Funding for Conferences, Projects, Programs, etc

What: The Student Outreach Program provides support to undergraduate students at the College of Charleston in endeavors that provide opportunities for growth as global citizens and the ability to serve as representatives of the institution beyond the campus community. The primary goal of the Student Outreach Program is to assist individual students (not connected to a registered student organization nor a department sponsored program) with costs associated with projects or programs that allow them to enhance their academic experience, develop a professional network and promote the quality programs and resources offered by the College to a broad and diverse audience. The Student Outreach request form, located on OrgSync, must be submitted by 5:00pm on Monday during the fall and spring semesters. Forms should be submitted at least four weeks prior to the commencement of the intended event.
