About this Journal
Four undergraduate students with the help of Fairfield University’s International Studies Program established the Undergraduate Journal of Global Citizenship in 2010. The journal was part of an AAC&U Bridging Theory to Practice grant to promote responsible global citizenship and student development. The journal is designed to highlight the accomplishments of young minds that are in constant intellectual engagement with their surroundings. We welcome undergraduate submissions that showcase and promote the understanding of global citizenship and social responsibility.
Fairfield University’s Undergraduate Journal of Global Citizenship will display the work of undergraduates from diverse academic backgrounds, who are committed to the efforts of global citizenship and social responsibility. In line with our Jesuit values which call us to be "dedicated to the common good, global and pluralistic in perspective, with an outlook that transcends the boundaries of culture and nationhood, and has an overarching goal of promotion of justice and the defense of human dignity" Fairfield Jesuit Values.
This journal advocates and highlights the accomplishments of young minds that are in constant intellectual engagement with their surroundings. Our aim is to showcase and promote the understanding of global citizenship and social responsibility.
Our Definition of Global Citizenship:
We view global citizenship as the breakage of land barriers into a wider recognition, and understanding, of human actions with social, political, environmental, and/or economic impact worldwide. A sense of social responsibility and community, not only with our direct neighbors, but with societies and life around the globe.
