The University of Guelph-Humber Soka Education Research Centre on Global Citizenship (SERC-GC)

The Soka Education Research Centre on Global Citizenship offers students an opportunity to be part of a small research group comprised of UofGH students and faculty who are interested in the philosophy of Soka education and global citizenship. SERC-GC is directed by Dr. Paul Sherman, Program Head, Community Social Services. Students selected to become members of this initiative are recognized as Research Assistants.


The mission of the Centre is to conduct research on Soka education’s application for educational and community settings, with an emphasis on education for global citizenship, and to contribute to local and international discourse on Soka education research and practical application.
