Public Engagement: CPGC
The Center for Peace and Global Citizenship (CPGC) advances Haverford's long standing commitment to peace and social justice through research, education and action.
The CPGC integrates innovative scholarship and responsible civic engagement around contemporary issues of global significance. The Center embodies Haverford's scholarly and ethical mission. The Center is continually funded by alumni donations earmarked for the program as well as, several endowed funds geared for the center. The Center funds student internships and faculty research and sponsors a wide menu of on-campus events including speakers, symposia and performances tied to academic programs with expectations of exposing members of the Haverford College Community to the key global issues of the day, so that they may develop as agents of social change.

On Wednesday April 14th 2010 the Center for Peace and Global Citizenship, in partnership with the Committee for Environmental Responsibility, cordially invited the entire College community to attend a luncheon to celebrate their kick-off of the "Going Greener" campaign!
CPGC is walking the walk when it comes to going greener. The café is using corn based flatware that can be composted. New containers have been clearly labeled for composting, recycling and trash. Food scraps are collected and delivered to the dining center for composting. And they're not done yet. Director, Parker Snowe and his staff are looking into carbon offsets for their students who travel abroad this summer.
