The Honors first-year experience, required for all incoming Honors students, is taking a hard look at CofC’s relationship to local history and community, especially the College’s ties to historical racism and its outcomes. In this talk, Dr. Brooke Permenter and Dr. Jennifer Cavalli highlight the ongoing, experiential, collaborative work of students, staff, and faculty in implementing a place-based curriculum with an anti-racist lens in the Honors first-year experience. While chronicling and assessing their work thus far, they also preview the next steps in a multi-year curricular plan rooted in anti-racism.



Addlestone Library is open to the College of Charleston community and affiliates via card access. Visitors may access Addlestone Library Monday-Friday, 9am-5pm, and must present a government issued ID and sign in upon entry.
