Haverford College Students and Faculty regularly focus their research on questions of justice. Among considerable bodies of such research, faculty have nominated eight students for special recognition for Publicly Engaged Research. Publicly Engaged Research (a) advances understanding and action for peace, social justice, or global citizenship, (b) emerges with and from people most affected by the justice / injustice question under consideration, and (c) is developed and disseminated in a manner conscious of inclusive and accessible knowledge mobilization. Nominees will present their research on Wednesday, April 20, at 7:00 pm in VCAM 201, using 7-minute Ignite Talks. All are welcome.
Please nominate seniors for the Publicly Engaged Scholar Award, which includes recognition at graduation and a $500 prize. Due to the pandemic, alumni from the classes of 2020 and 2021 will also be considered in this round of nominations. Self-nominations are encouraged. The student does not need to have worked through the CPGC to receive the award. The nomination deadline is Friday, March 25.

We're not acting like it.” But what might “acting like it” look like? Several Fords have been working to strengthen democracy throughout their careers, and numerous CPGC partners support and advocate for basic democratic rights. Current students can get involved through funded summer internships.
