I had the opportunity yesterday, April 7, to visit Kennesaw State University and was hosted by the Center for Conflict Management. I appreciated the chance to visit with my colleague and friend Sherrill Hayes, who directs the master’s program.
While at KSU, I met with students who attended the March Atlantic Promise field exercise hosted by the Forage Center. We talked about their impressions of the experience. Right now they are all in the midst of writing papers reflecting on the exercise.
I also talked with faculty and staff about career awareness and my book. KSU not only supports a master’s and PhD in conflict management, but has an undergraduate program in peace studies. We talked about the importance of intersectionality in looking at careers and how a minor can be applied to other majors to promote career opportunities.
