Community colleges are
working to promote the understanding of issues that have a global impact
including those dealing with conflict, violence, war and the efforts to build
peaceful and sustainable communities. In order to meet the above objective and
better prepare students for a globalized, ever changing 21st century, George Mason University will host the the 7th Annual National Community
College Peacebuilding Seminar, Teaching about Global Conflict and
Peacebuilding, this year from October 31 to November 3, 2019.
This seminar is designed to
support faculty (full and part-time) and administrators as they strive to
develop relevant and innovative approaches to teaching about global conflict and
peacebuilding. The program seeks to bring together a multidisciplinary array of
community college professionals in order to support their efforts with
students. Attendees will be learning from Washington, D.C., based experts on
global conflict and peacebuilding including those from the U.S. government,
non-governmental organizations, international organizations, academics and
practitioners about approaches that can be used with students. Themes to be
covered will include international law, peace and conflict resolution
education, experiential learning, media, dialogue, program development and
other areas that will tap the expertise uniquely based in Washington, D.C.
