Library Book Donation Project

Beginning in 2021, books that reflect the values of TRHT were selected by members of The Citadel’s TRHT Center to be donated to the college’s Daniel Library. This project was made possible through the support of the American Association of Colleges and Universities (AAC&U) and The Papa John’s Foundation for Building Community.


All books donated through this project have been given this bookplate:
