The Center for Peace and Global Citizenship grew out of faculty and student interests that emerged during the College’s 1999 Review for Accreditation.
Since then, the Center has developed and expanded into a flourishing nexus for social responsibility, civic engagement, and global peace work, both on campus and within the greater community, with a broad range of summer and academic year opportunities for students and faculty, a network of social justice resources, and a campus café.
The Center for Peace and Global Citizenship advances Haverford’s long-standing commitment to peace and social justice through research, education and action. The Center integrates innovative scholarship and responsible civic engagement around contemporary issues of global significance. With its commitment to knowledge as the foundation for effective action, the Center embodies Haverford’s scholarly and ethical mission as a premier liberal arts college.
