The John Palmer Communication Award

The Department of Communication Advisory Council at the College of Charleston seeks to honor John’s incredible legacy and commitment to the future of the communication field by establishing The John Palmer Communication Award. This legacy award will support opportunities for College of Charleston communication students to continue their education beyond the classroom and engage in real world learning experiences. Given John’s commitment to experiential education, this award is a wonderful way to honor John’s life, while creating new and unique opportunities for the next generation of communication professionals. Gifts to this award would support opportunities such as: 

  • Creation and placement in high-level internships within the communication fields, both locally, nationally, and internationally
  • Study abroad opportunities and other international learning experiences
  • Participation and presentations at professional conferences
  • Faculty-student collaborative research projects.
