Promoting Civic Engagement

Our Work

GCJD engages with the campus, local community, national and international partners to raise awareness of important issues and encourage civic engagement. We passionately promote freedom of expression, information and the press. We involve students in researching, campaigning, and raising awareness of social issues that are important to them, and give them the tools and resources they need to enact change in their own communities and the world.
