The Center for Peace Studies and Violence Prevention at Virginia Tech is located in Norris Hall on the campus. It was in Norris Hall in April 2007 that 30 of the 32 individuals who died that day lost their lives.
This news report (click below) from WDBJ from April 16 includes an interview with James Hawdon the program’s director. There is also a similar news report by WRIC on April 16 as well as an article in the Richmond Times-Dispatch from April 12.
I will be in Roanoke, VA (Hotel Roanoke and Conference Center) this coming Thursday and Friday, April 20-21 to speak at the “Cultivating Peace: A Student Research Symposium on Violence Prevention.”
