I am conflict resolution educator, peacebuilding trainer and career coach. My professional experience has spanned the legal, think tank, international, quasi-government, and higher and secondary education sectors. I have taught at all higher education levels: community college, 4-year undergraduate (private, public, religious), graduate, and international. In 2003-2004 I was a U.S. Fulbright Scholar teaching at the University of Tartu in Estonia. From 1992-2005 I taught full-time at Harford Community College in Bel Air, MD. From 2005 -2012 I was a senior program officer and senior manager at the U.S. Institute of Peace in Washington where I managed programs for colleges and universities and developed training for faculty and students. My passion is community colleges and how "democracy's colleges" can be centers of peacebuilding and global awareness. However, I work with all groups and educational institutions to support peacebuilding awareness. View all posts by David J. Smith
