For students returning from internship experiences who wish to deepen their understanding of social justice and healthcare, this course integrates experiential learning with readings on cultural conceptions of health, structural determinants of health, and addressing health inequalities in the United States and other countries.
A recent screening of a documentary about Prayasam, which works to empower disadvantaged youth from the Kolkata slums and has employed CPGC-sponsored interns in the past, showcased the connection between the organization and Haverford.
This course considers human rights theory and civil society action as they relate to students’ recent Center for Peace and Global Citizenship-sponsored summer internship experiences to interrogate the relationship between social issues and policy structures.
Haverford hosted scholars, activists, educators, and creators for a symposium on extending the guarantees of human rights policy more broadly.
Haverford’s third annual Public Policy Forum invited alumni back to campus to share their experiences from working in different areas of policy, from education and the environment to healthcare and local government.
