The Center of Resilience Excellence South Carolina (CORE SC) is a consortium founded by the College of Charleston, the South Carolina Aquarium, and Charleston County Government. 

With coastal sandy beaches, inland rivers and lakes, moody swamps, dense forests, and the Piedmont’s rolling hills, South Carolina is home to varied landscapes and resources. She has a deep bench with a robust technology industry, state-of-the-art manufacturing, productive agriculture, and diverse people with well-established roots and rich experiences. These features make South Carolina a desirable place to call home.

What makes South Carolina unique can also make it vulnerable. With several named weather events in recent years causing devastating hurricanes and flooding, coupled with unprecedented population growth and land development, there has never been a greater need for establishing best practices for statewide resilience and sustainability. That’s where CORE SC comes in.
