Carolinian Creed Day and Creed Week
Creed Day 2010 - November 10
Creed Week 2011 - March 21-25
Through a variety of observances, the University of South Carolina draws attention to the Carolinian Creed, a value statement to codify and communicate the campus community’s values. Carolinian Creed Day and Creed Week brings together students, staff, faculty, and the community to work on programs and projects that speak to the values inherent in the Creed. Each activity is designed to increase campus civility and to promote academic and personal integrity. Carolinian Creed Day, which takes place during the fall semester, will feature a day of events and announce the winner of the Creed Essay Contest. Carolinian Creed Week, which takes place in the spring semester, features speakers, student forums, and interactive displays. Instructors use the occasion to relate the Creed to their academic disciplines.
Carolinian Creed Week began informally, with each academic department organizing events. In 1997, the Office of Student Judicial Programs assumed responsibility along with the Carolina Judicial Council. The Carolina Judicial Council is the primary student organization charged with Carolinian Creed programming, encouraging and soliciting other student organizations to host programs and events that celebrate the Creed.
