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 Bringing Theory to Practice grant to promote responsible global citizenship and student development. The journal is designed to highlight the accomplishments of young minds in constant intellectual engagement with their surroundings.
Fairfield University’s Undergraduate Journal of Global Citizenship honors the work of undergraduates from diverse academic backgrounds, united by their dedication to global citizenship and social responsibility, in line with the Jesuit values of our University.
We welcome undergraduate submissions that showcase and promote the understanding of global citizenship and social responsibility. We view global citizenship as a disengagement from barriers into a recognition and understanding of human actions with social, political, environmental, and/or economic impact worldwide. A sense of community, not only with our direct neighbors, but with societies and lives around the globe, makes a socially responsible individual.
