The mission of the Bully Pulpit Series is to encourage and facilitate political participation throughout the student community by providing a platform for dialogue with our nation’s leaders. At its core, the Series engages today's youth by meeting students where they are -- in the classroom, outside their dorm and through their social networks -- to inspire curious, informed and engaged individuals that are ready and able to engender political and social change.
As an effort of the College of Charleston Department of Communication and Department of Political Science, the Bully Pulpit Series gives young voters the opportunity to become involved in the political process as well as the issues that affect their communities. Originally created in 2008 to highlight the communication powers of the political pulpit, the mission of the Series has expanded as a result of increased student and community interest and engagement.
The Bully Pulpit Series is shaped and guided by the following core values:
- Students First
- Active Citizenship
- Civic Leadership
