Students Connected: Fieldwork for the Future

At USCB, students gain real-world, hands-on experience and help the Lowcountry community through our Students Connected focus. This University-wide program inspires students across all disciplines by offering opportunities for fieldwork, research, internships, and service learning with local partners. The goal of Students Connected is to transform students’ learning, enhance the classroom experiences of students and faculty, and boost the University’s positive impact in the community. USCB supports Students Connected through training, financial support, fostering community partnerships, and recognizing outstanding contributions.
