The Rohatyn Student Advisory Board (RSAB) publishes a peer-reviewed undergraduate journal, Global Reader, to feature students’ incisive academic papers and research on global issues.

All volumes of the Global Reader can be accessed digitally via the following links. Hard copies of the most recent edition are available in the Robert A. Jones ’59 House. 


The Global Reader hopes to advance an interdisciplinary understanding of pressing contemporary and historical global issues. It will embody this ethos by accepting a wide range of papers. Essays considered will explore any of the world’s most urgent topics of global interest, such as: migration and trafficking, cybersecurity, millennium development goals, refugees and human rights, politics of freshwater, youth unemployment, food insecurity, global religions, decolonization, questions of gender and sexuality, and more. Please note this list is merely suggestive and not exhaustive.
