About The Commons

In a world where politics and government increasingly impacts the everyday lives of global citizens, there is an everpresent need to inform the people around us. Created by us, a collection of students, The Commons aims to act as a forum for undergraduate students to share their work, promote new ideas, and educate their peers.

Mission Statement

The Commons aims to provide the Puget Sound community with accessible information about the world’s political moment. Acting as an interdisciplinary research venue for its authors and its readers, this journal educates, excites, and encourages an engaged electorate.

The Commons hopes to...
