8th Annual National Community College Peacebuilding Seminar – Virtual – 10/30-31, 11/6-7, 11/13-14

Since 2013, educators and students interested in the critical role that community colleges play in higher education have met in the Washington, DC area to learn, share, and experience on a range of topics including peacebuilding, conflict, human rights, social justice, peace education, international affairs, and nonviolence. Due to the current pandemic, this year’s seminar will be held virtually using Zoom as a means of presenting and sharing.

The seminar will be held on three consecutive Fridays and Saturdays from 12:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. Eastern Time. The seminar will feature 12 – 45 minute sessions. The focus of most sessions will be social justice and public health issues within a peacebuilding context. 

This year’s seminar will be sponsored jointly by the Forage Center for Peacebuilding and Humanitarian Education, Inc., a 501c3 corporation advancing experiential-based learning on humanitarian and peacebuilding practices, and David J. Smith Consulting, LLC, a DC based consultancy.
