About the CPGC
The Haverford College Center for Peace and Global Citizenship (CPGC) fulfills its mission to integrate "innovative scholarship and responsible civic engagement around contemporary issues of global significance" by sponsoring and supporting a broad menu of programs.
In short, the CPGC exists to expose all members of the Haverford community, but especially students, to the key global issues of the day so that they can better equip themselves to help solve these problems after they leave Haverford's campus. In this regard, the CPGC is one of the most visible examples of the College's Quaker ethos, grounded in testimonies of peace, lives of service, and a concern for the world at large. Although not an academic department per se, the Center does support the scholarly mission of the College by serving as an incubator of fresh ideas and providing a link between classroom instruction and experiential learning.
