Students for Global Citizenship Club

Welcome to the Students for Global Citizenship Club (S4GC) webpage!

Students for Global Citizenship is an official student club at Brookdale Community College. Members are active in events that bring about awareness of global issues to the Brookdale Community. We meet on the second and third Thursdays of each month during the regular semester. Our meetings are held in MAN 106 and they run from 11:30 am to 1:15 pm (during “College Hour”).

Noteworthy: Brookdale’s S4GC was cited in a 2015 article published by the American Council on Education as a “model from the field” for global and intercultural student organizations (Internationalizing the Co-Curriculum: Global and Intercultural Education, pg 16).
