Assistant to Executive Director

Global Citizens Circle

Global Citizens Circle is a nonprofit located on the SNHU Manchester campus in the Wolak Library Learning Commons. Since 1974, GCC has been bringing people together who are diverse in race, ethnicity, age, sexual orientation, socio-economic background and opinion, to talk with one another about critical issues of our time.  We organize events, which we call Circles that are moderated discussions usually led by well-known global figures, including heads of state, Nobel Peace Laureates, and other lesser-known, but inspiring leaders from civil society, academia and business. These discussions are intergenerational and highly interactive. GCC believes that respectful conversation and dialogue is the necessary starting point for any meaningful social change to take place.
