Amanda Grolig '19 Wins Inaugural CPGC Publicly Engaged Scholar Award
The Haverford College senior was among over a dozen BiCo students funded by the CPGC for engaged research this year.
Amanda Grolig '19 was selected as the first recipient of the Center for Peace and Global Citizenship Publicly Engaged Scholar Award for her project and presentation, “Restorative Justice Education and Masculine Flexibility.” The award includes a $250 prize.
The CPGC Publicly Engaged Scholar Award recognizes knowledge production and dissemination that advances peace, social justice, and global citizenship. Preference is given to seniors who have demonstrated capacity to communicate concisely about their research to diverse audiences. Special consideration is given to research questions that emerge through relationships with organizations and networks advancing justice.
A faculty and staff committee reviewed all presentations shared at the CPGC's April 25th event, Applied, Community-Engaged Research for Peace & Global Citizenship. Among the presentations, Amanda's stood out for several reasons, including her careful attention to form, audience, and content.
The committee was additionally impressed by Amanda's methodical and conscientious collaboration with Let’s Circle Up. Let's Circle Up is a restorative justice program based in the State Correctional Institution-Phoenix. Reviewers were impressed by the way in which Amanda's research adds to a long-standing partnership between the CPGC and LCU. Following Commencement, Amanda will be continuing in the CPGC community as a Haverford House Fellow at Philadelphia Legal Assistance.
