Darkness to Light

Darkness to Light

The Citadel is proud to announce that it is the first college in the country to enter into an agreement with the Darkness to Light Foundation for campus-wide training to the BOV, faculty, staff, students, and campus residents over the age of 18. In 2006, the School of Education was the first school or college division to make Stewards of Children a mandatory part of its curriculum. Today, the entire college is moving forward, becoming the first college to make a bold step of this kind to prevent child sex abuse.

The goal of Darkness to Light is to end child sexual abuse. Darkness to Light's "Stewards of Children" training program will help the college set up policies and programs to protect children and teach The Citadel community to recognize behaviors and learn how to respond.

The Citadel has made a commitment to offer Darkness to Light Stewards of Children training for all students at no cost. As part of The Citadel student body, we invite you to participate in this exciting leadership endeavor! Online training for graduate and evening undergraduate students is being offered to accommodate busy school and work schedules.

Graduate Students will complete the D2L training through LDRS 500. Evening undergraduate students will complete the D2L requirement through EUGS 101. Students will register for their respective classes the first semester at The Citadel.

If you already have been trained as a Steward of Children in the past five (5) years, please email a copy of your Darkness to Light certificate to child.protection@citadel.edu. The certification is valid for five (5) years.  Contact The Citadel's Child Protection Officer if you have any questions or concerns.
