Sports have always been a large part of Candice M. Jackson‘s life. Now, as the head coach of the College of Charleston women’s basketball team, she understands the importance of expanding women’s roles in athletics and using sports as a platform for women to express themselves and expand their impact.

To commemorate the centennial of women attending the College of Charleston, CofC is celebrating the 2018-19 academic year as the “Year of Women.” Throughout the year, CofC will host a series of events, speakers, seminars and more to commemorate this anniversary. The events are designed to encourage dialogue about the admission and history of women students at The College, and to highlight their many contributions over the last 100 years.
