Sustainability Literacy Institute – Mini Grant Funding for Spring 2020

What: Do you have an idea for sustainability-centered programming? As the hub for sustainability literacy at the College of Charleston, the Sustainability Literacy Institute (SLI) views the engagement of students, faculty, and staff in sustainability projects and events as a high priority. In line with this desire for engagement, the SLI is offering mini grants (up to $1000 per proposal) for the purposes of creating a College community that is empowered to inculcate sustainability literacy. The SLI Mini Grant application should be used to apply for funding from the SLI to help with these endeavors with a specific focus on our 2019-2020 CofC Sustains/Solves theme of the year, “Food Security.” Applications that target and contribute to “Sustainability Month” programming, which will run approximately from post-Spring Break through the end of classes, will receive extra consideration.

Deadline: October 15th, 2019 at 10pm

To Apply: For more details on the application process and selection criteria, please read through the Mini Grant Funding Application. Please send completed applications to Todd LeVasseur, SLI director, at by the application deadline.

Blue Beyond Strategic Planning Workshops

What: These workshops will guide participants through the strategic planning journey while capturing their input on many important topics concerning the College’s future.

Key takeaways from these sessions will be critical information for the College’s Strategic Planning Steering Committee as they develop the strategic plan.

When: 2 sessions on Wednesday, September 18; 9am-12pm and 1-4pm

Where: Stern Ballroom
