Share Your Story

Share Your Story Banner

This initiative is sponsored by the Office of Sustainability with research support from the Geography Program at the College of Charleston.

After the Mother Emanuel AME Church massacre in the summer of 2015, the Office of Sustainability decided to have its annual Sustainability Week  be locally focused and centered around the theme of the Value of Us.  How can we work to develop solutions for our community when we don’t even understand many of the issues that need to be addressed? How can we have a sustainable community when many of its members are oppressed? Using storytelling as a means to empower people to share their experiences, this February the Office of Sustainability collected over fifty stories of experiences at the College of Charleston from students, faculty, and staff. 

To hear all of the stories that were collected, visit our Share Your Story Archive here.
