Global and Civic Engagement Committee

The Global and Civic Engagement Committee (GCEC) at Rosemont College works to instill, educate, and inspire students, faculty, and staff to create positive changes in both the College and surrounding communities. The GCEC also supports diversity, inclusion, and the community spirit on campus. 

The primary focus of the GCEC is to facilitate the Annual Global and Civic Engagement Week in October and to provide supplemental programing, workshops, and resources throughout the academic year.


Rosemont College encourages community members to be actively engaged in democracy not only by voting in presidential elections, but state and local races as well. That’s why the GCEC is part of the All In Campus Democracy challenge. As a participant in the campaign, Rosemont can be nationally recognized for prompting students to be informed citizens who use voting as a platform to make their voices heard.

Power of Voting Panel

GCEC Chair and Director of Leadership & Engagement Jessica Burns is joined by Professors Adam Lusk and Jennifer Zoga, and Sr. Margaret Doyle, Vice President for Mission, to discuss the importance of civic engagement.
