Community Needs Assessments for PAR

The Honors College, in partnership with The Citadel, is hosting two Community Needs Assessments (CNA) for People Against Rape (PAR).

The PAR survey asks questions about your knowledge of sexual violence and available community resources. Your answers will help PAR provide more comprehensive resources and services to survivors in our community. This survey is expected to last approximately 5-10 minutes. Your participation is voluntary, and any answers will remain confidential and anonymous. If you choose to participate you have the right to stop at any time. At the end of the survey, you can choose to provide your email address to be entered into a drawing to win a gift card and/or receive information about these surveys.

These Community Needs Assessments will be held in Berry 104 on October 22nd from 4:30-6:30, and October 30th from 5:30-7:30.

The “house meeting” serves as a venue for students to gather to share the concerns in our community that keep you up at night and to learn more about what we can do to make Charleston safer, more affordable, more accessible, and more equitable for everyone.

School of Science and Math Research Mixer

What: Each year, SSM holds a research match-making session focusing on undergraduates potentially interested in conducting research. The motivation for the event comes from the fact that many of our SSM majors find the most daunting step in pursuing an independent research project to be the first one – approaching a faculty member to inquire about research possibilities. CofC faculty, and those from neighboring institutions and agencies (such as MUSC, SCDNR, and NOAA), who are interested in recruiting and mentoring students in research projects declare their interest and make themselves available in their offices/labs/atrium of SSMB. Students can drop in at any time to explore research assistant opportunities. A list of participating labs will be available one week prior to the event.

When: Tuesday, November 12 from 4:00-5:30pm

Where: SSMB Atrium

For more information leading up to the event, check out the mixer’s webpage.

Faculty Lecture Series: Black Religion and Black Nationalism from Slave Rebellions to Black Lives Matter

What: Join the Honors College and the Friends of the Library for the second installment of the Fall Faculty Lecture series. Dr. Matthew Cressler’s is offering a preview of his Spring 2020 course, “Black Religion and Black Nationalism from Slave Rebellions to Black Lives Matter.” This lecture introduces attendees to the religious ideas and practices from across the African diaspora that gave rise to the political tradition now known as “Black nationalism.” While the tradition is often imagined to be secular (even anti-religious), this lecture explores the deep religious roots of Black struggles to create a new nation—from slave rebellions to the Black Power revolution to our contemporary Black Lives Matter movement.

When: Tuesday, October 22 from 3:30-4:30 pm

Where: Addlestone 227

This event is free and open to the public. Registration is required. For more information and to register for this lecture, please visit the event’s page.
