For organizational and leadership opportunities on campus, including within the Honors College

Apply for the CofC Honor Board!

The Honor Board is a student-led organization that coordinates hearings to determine whether students are responsible for infractions of the codes outlined in the Student Handbook. This includes honor code violations like cheating and plagiarism and code of conduct violations such as alcohol and drug use. Our conduct process allows students to tell their side of the story to a Board or Panel composed of employees and students who then make a decision about where the responsibility lies and any consequences that follow. As members of the Board, we are trained in active listening and open-questioning techniques to elicit as much information as possible from the student and others to make an informed decision about how we should proceed in a manner that best benefits the student and the institution.

The CofC Honor Board provides a great opportunity for campus involvement! To apply, please complete the online application as soon as possible! You can learn more about the organization by following their Instagram (@cofchonorboard) and Facebook Page (@cofchonorboard).

Honors Interdisciplinary Bachelor’s Essay

Consider helping an undergraduate student as she works towards completion of a bachelor’s essay project on narrative medicine! The goal is to understand what makes the stories of orthopedic patients unique from the stories of patients in other specialties, and to consider how sharing these stories may be beneficial to patients during treatment and recovery. All those aged 18 or older who have been treated for an orthopedic condition or injury are eligible to participate.

Participation requires completion of a short demographic questionnaire and an hour-long interview over Zoom (IRB Approval Code: GHGM-11-02-2020). Feel free to reply with any questions you may have!

If you are interested in participating, please complete this questionnaire and the student will reach out with details on how to proceed. Thank you for your time!

Peer Mentoring with the REACH Program

The REACH Program is seeking volunteer mentors to assist students in the program with the transitions and experiences of college. Mentors aid in providing a “true college experience” for students by sharing time, knowledge, and experiences with their peers. Mentors are role models, supporters, and friends! Interactions can take place on weekdays or weekends, virtually and in-person, and can be anything you would typically do with friends or for school based on your interests. Commit to a short amount of time each week and start building a truly valuable relationship!

Interested students can contact Arianne Bauserman, Mentor Coordinator, at bausermanam@cofc.edu with questions or download a Mentor Information form here.

*Note: Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, all in-person interactions must be in compliance with the College of Charleston’s and City of Charleston’s recommendations and policies.
