The Center for Peace and Global Citizenship (CPGC) offers student summer internships and academic year fellowships, community-engaged courses, on-campus speakers and professional development, and financial support for student and faculty community-engaged learning. The CPGC partners with the full breadth of academic majors and community organizations to advance peace, justice, inclusion, and sustainability as components of robust and critical global citizenship. CPGC activities take place in our local region, on campus, and all around the world.

Over spring break, students from Jonathan Wilson’s Botany class journeyed to the dual-island nation to study its abundant plants, diverse wildlife, and rich culture. This is the fourth year the trip has been offered.
The Center for Peace and Global Citizenship is funding 58 students in summer internships with justice-serving organizations all around the world. 21 students are interning with organizations in the Philadelphia Metro Region. Congratulations to all of the selected students, who completed strong cover letters, resumes, and application processes as they worked toward the fellowship awards. 2023 CPGC Summer Fellows, along with organizations where they will leverage and develop their professional skills, are listed below.

“Learning to move in concert.” Paid work with Philly Justice Orgs; Professional Development and Social Movement Training through PJEF
The CPGC expanded into the second year of the Philadelphia, Justice & Equity Fellowship. ‘PJEF’ Fellows are Haverford students who work with community-based anti-racist or inclusive organizations in the Philadelphia region during the course of the school year. Their internship experiences are supplemented with twice monthly professional development and cohort-building opportunities.
The Center for Peace and Global Citizenship is excited to invite nominations for seniors to be considered for the Publicly Engaged Scholar Award, which includes recognition at graduation and a $500 prize. Student self-nominations are also encouraged (the student does not need to have worked through the CPGC to receive the award). The nomination deadline is Friday, March 31.
CPGC Fellows had the opportunity to share their research and summer experiences with the Haverford community through the poster fair and ignite talks.

This MLK Day, members of the Haverford-Ardmore community and students at the college attended a CPGC - conversation with two former students from the York Central school district who were instrumental in challenging a book-ban there, plus three local Philadelphia educators/authors. The event also marked the inaugural CPGC Award for Creative Maladjustment and Youth-led Social Change.
We started 2022 uncertain whether we would be permitted to fund students completing place-based international internships. We ended the year with a capacity-building trip to the Middle East. 2022 was, for the Center for Peace and Global Citizenship, a year of stepping into challenges, acting beyond expectations, and fulfilling the College’s core commitments to better learning for broader impact.
