College History

The long and distinguished history of the College of Charleston is a core brand strength of the College. The information in this chapter should be used in College marketing and communications materials to reinforce the truth that the unique qualities of today’s College of Charleston are a result of the historic nature of our institution. The history of the College is not an anchor keeping the institution from moving forward. Rather, our history provides a strong foundation for the College of Charleston’s dedicated learning community to explore, to discover, to create.
