PROSPECT is a unique student organization that creates, writes and develops an international affairs journal at the University of California, San Diego.
Our goal is to share works that inspire critical thought and action.
We started in 2009, and we have not stopped working and improving since then.
Our online journal serves as a forum for intelligent discourse by showcasing works created by students who wish to broaden their understanding of issues with contemporary and global relevance. By publishing online, we maintain our eco-friendly mission and provide a wider readership for our writers. With the exception of our advisor, our journal is entirely student-run: we provide the brainpower, writing, and marketing. By placing ourselves at the intersection of policy and the arts, we believe that we can better understand current affairs from a variety of vantage points. Want to add something to our narrative?

“The Prospect Fund strives to maximize returns in the stock market by investing in sustainable growth companies which make a positive difference in society, while avoiding businesses with an overall negative impact.

The Prospect Fund was established over 20 years ago by Andy Nahas after he won the USA Today/CNBC National Investment Challenge.
Nahas’ philosophy was deeply influenced by his college years at the UC San Diego, where he developed strong interest in addressing some of the world’s most pressing issues such as poverty and hunger, injustice, and bad corporate behavior. We thank Mr. Nahas and the Prospect fund for their important contributions in support of the work that Prospect Journal does.This publication may have been funded in part or in whole by funds allocated by the ASUCSD.
