8th Annual National Community College Seminar Application

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.

Since 2013, an annual gathering of educators and students interested in the critical role that community colleges play in higher education has taken place in Washington, DC to learn, share, and experience on a range of contemporary topics including those related to peacebuilding, conflict, human rights, social justice, peace education, international affairs, and nonviolence. Due to the current pandemic, this year’s seminar will be held virtually by Zoom.

The seminar will be held in a virtual format on three consecutive Fridays and Saturdays from 12:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. Eastern Time. The seminar will feature 12 – 45 minute sessions. Many will focus on social justice and public health issues within a peacebuilding context.

Once approved for the conference, registration information will be provided. The cost of the seminar is $80 for all three days. Participants will register and pay the seminar fee. Participants will be reimbursed for the $80 registration fee by Global Citizenship. Participants should plan to attend all seminar days/presentations.
