University of Massachusetts Survey of Peace and Conflict Programs

By David J. Smith, October 25, 2016

I recently received this message from Jeff Pugh at the University of Massachusetts.  If you are affiliated with a Peace and Conflict Resolution program you will want to participate.

Dear Colleague,
 
We are writing to invite your participation in a study on short-term (one week through one semester) academic programs focused on peace and/or conflict.  Your participation is requested as the founder/director/staff member of an organization implementing, or having implemented in the past, a peace or conflict-focused program with an international focus (either occurring internationally or bringing international participants to a US-based program). 
 
By participating in this study, you will be contributing to the first systematic assessment of networks established through past and current participation in international education for peace programs around the world.  Your participation will help us gain important insights into key features of the global international education for peace community, including:
 – Areas of focus within international education for peace;
 – Depth and breadth of professional networks among international education for peace programs;
 – Depth and breadth of professional networks established by program alumni;
 – Best practices and innovations resulting from participation in international education for peace programs
 
Most importantly, your participation will allow you to preview survey materials and research results as this initiative evolves.   
 
Your participation represents a significant contribution to this exciting research initiative.  The outcomes of this research will indicate how professional development opportunities arise through participation in the field of international education for peace as well as highlighting best practices in the field as a whole.  
 
To participate, please complete the survey available at: http://umb.qualtrics.com//SE/?SID=SV_emwcPMJG6KqcJb7 
 
Thank you in advance for your participation and cooperation,
