Connecting College & Community
We’re proud of our Columbia roots, and we strive to connect our people and our resources to the community. Many Columbia natives remember taking swimming lessons here or performing at Cottingham Theater. Our professors make it a priority to connect students to local service and professional opportunities. And organizations are always welcome to attend and host events on our campus. Let's make Columbia stronger, together.
Coming to campus for a camp, event, or meeting? We're excited to host you, and we want to make sure you find just what you're looking for. Use our map tools for easy navigation around campus.
Equipping Community Organizations
We're a national leader in Trauma-Informed Practices (TIP)—educating students as well as organizations. In June 2023, we designated the Alston Wilkes Society a TIP Agency, the first of its kind in South Carolina. We were honored to train them and look forward to serving them as they serve countless individuals.
Caring for the Underserved
In partnership with Cooperative Health, we've brought new access to quality healthcare to our campus and neighborhood. Columbia Community Family Practice provides primary and preventative services and behavioral health counseling for adult and pediatric patients. Please call 803.888.1106 to schedule an appointment.
Supporting Women in Business
Headquartered at Columbia College, the Women's Business Center (WBC) of SC creates programs that further women business leaders throughout the state. The WBC hosts networking programs to encourage both undergraduate students and South Carolina women passionate about business.
Partnering to Promote the Arts
"This partnership is a natural fit for both organizations. It will give students the opportunity to participate in productions on campus, faculty and staff the opportunity to enrich their lives and classrooms, and the main thing is that this partnership will help to enrich this community and the city of Columbia." —Jocelyn Sanders, Board Member & Alumna
Commitment to Community
"Columbia College’s mission of social justice and service lends well to creating a partnership focused on enhancing opportunities for our neighbors and community."
