The CMM Learning Exchange is an annual forum that brings together a diverse community of individuals and groups to focus on and advance individual and collective understanding on communication, as put forth by the Coordinated Management of Meaning (CMM). AC4 supports CMM as a theoretical framework and methodology for addressing issues of violence and conflict, and for fostering peace and sustainability.
“CMM is the acronym for “Coordinated Management of Meaning,” a phrase that describes what we do when we communicate with each other. … Individual scholars and practitioners, educators and thought leaders, and institutional advocates comprise the core of the [CMM] Institute’s supporters, however, the Institute’s programs and events are open to everyone.”
The 2018 CMM Learning Exchange is hosted by the CMM Institute for Personal and Social Evolution, in partnership with Columbia University. Participants include scholars and practitioners, educators, students and thought leaders who bring a variety of backgrounds and disciplines. Fostering interdisciplinary approaches to constructive conflict resolution and peacebuilding, AC4 offers fellowship awards to the learning exchange for current graduate students and emerging scholar-practitioners as a way to offset travel expenses and add diversity at the CMM Learning Exchange.
