Edvard Joseph

It’s easy to discover Edvard’s interests. From the International Club, Finance Club and Student Governing Association, where he served as comptroller, Edvard is all things international and economics. Originally from Haiti, Edvard tutors French, studies German, and speaks Creole, Spanish, French and English.

He secured a Richter independent study grant from North Central to travel to Bhutan, a small country between India and China, to conduct research about gross national happiness (GNH), an economic and anthropological analysis of happiness. He observed everyday Bhutanese culture and conducted formal interviews with scholars and government officials to analyze the strengths and weaknesses of the GNH compared to the gross domestic product (GDP) as an economic factor. He presented his findings at the College’s Rall Symposium for Undergraduate Research and a national conference.

Eager to share his interests with others, Edvard is recruiting his younger brother to attend North Central, too. “I like it so much here that I’m enrolling others.”
