The Scholar-Citizen Initiative

The Scholar-Citizen Initiative (SCI) is a select group of Honors students dedicated to improving their communities on campus and in the greater Charleston area. Members of the initiative meet periodically throughout the academic year as agents for Honors student interest. This group will work to democratically channel the commonwealth of Honors students’ passions and skills into action via impactful programming.

Members of the Scholar-Citizen Initiative must demonstrate the capacity for leadership on campus and in the community. Applicants must have completed at least one semester in the Honors College, and be in good standing with a 3.4 GPA. If accepted, members must attend at least one SCI meeting and two events directly related to the goals of the initiative per semester. All students who are interested are encouraged to apply. There are 25 spots available. The deadline to apply is Thursday, February 15th.

To celebrate the inception of the Scholar-Citizen Initiative, a group of CofC Honors faculty, staff, and students will stay overnight for a retreat at Metanoia on February 23rd. We will spend the evening discussing the immediate objectives of the initiative, including the translation of theory into practice in community engagement. We will spend the next day working on a community project organized by Metanoia. Lodging, dinner, and breakfast will be provided. There are 12 slots available.
