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,
the NOVA Institute for Public Service Peace will host the 3rd Annual
National Community College Peacebuilding Seminar, Teaching about Global
Conflict and Peacebuilding: A Seminar for Community Colleges this year
from October 23 to October 26, 2015.
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, nongovernmental
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.
The seminar agenda will be available closer to the
