President McConnell Joins the Spread the Word to End the Word Campaign

Best Buddies CofC‘s Spread the Word to End the Word campaign will be taking place on March 2nd. The College of Charleston campaign is part of an international campaign (r-word.org) to create awareness that “the word” (retarded) is extremely offensive/a slur, and should be treated as such.

I had the privilege to participate in a video for the College’s Best Buddies organization to promote this great campaign. Watch the video below and please help us build a more inclusive and welcoming campus community by spreading the word to end the word.
