Historical Note

Founded in 2000, the Center for Peace and Global Citizenship (CPGC) grew out of faculty and student interests which surfaced during the College’s 2009 review for accreditation. Its mission is to advance “peace, social justice, and global citizenship through research, education, and action.” The CPGC is involved with a wide range of programs throughout the summer and academic year, including sponsoring internships and student projects (often beyond campus), hosting symposia, workshops, and speakers, and supporting class activities. They oversee Haverford House, a program founded to strengthen the connections between the College and the city of Philadelphia.
