The Journal of the Core Curriculum was founded in 1992 as a student-led anthology of exemplary writing by the students and faculty of the Core.  Beginning with the 2021 issue, edited by Vanessa Hanger, the editors expanded their call for submissions to students and alumni with any CAS affiliation. Pictured at right is the cover from this year’s issue, No. 32.

The Journal is produced by student editors in the CAS Core Curriculum, primarily those enrolled in HUB CC192: Collegiate Publishing Workshop. Our mission is to expand our engagement with great works, great questions, and great ideas, empowered by our study of the liberal arts, and to share these conversations with communities beyond the classroom.

The Journal is published annually and is available at no cost to members of the CAS community and interested members of the public as supplies allow. To inquire about the availability of print copies, contact the staff.
