10th Annual National Community College Peacebuilding Seminar: REGISTRATION NOW OPEN

Since 2013, over 150 community college professionals have assembled in person and virtually to consider issues of peacebuilding, conflict, international affairs, diversity, human rights, and globalization.   This is the only seminar of its kind in the U.S.  This year, it will again be held virtually by Zoom.  The dates of the seminar are October 28 and 29: 12-2 ET; November 4 and 5: 12-2 ET; and November 11 and 12: 12-2 ET.

The cost for faculty/staff is $80 and graduate students: $25.  Undergraduate students (including community college students) can attend at no cost!  But all must register.

The agenda is still being finalized but speakers planned include Michael Collins from the Institute for Economics and Peace; Paul Loeb author of Soul of a Citizen and The Impossible Will Take a Little While; a career panel of a former community college students working for peace; Laura Osuri from Homes Not Borders; Holly Rosewood from the Pulitzer Center; and sessions on extremism, academic freedom and other topics.   The agenda for the 2021 program is here.

Please share with your colleagues and students!  We are also still accepting a few late presentation proposals (that must be submitted by tomorrow, Wednesday, 9/28).
