Save the Dates: 6th Annual Summer Institute for Faculty, June 16-20, 2014


The 6th Annual Summer Institute for Faculty in Peace Studies Program Development — "Teaching Peace in the 21st Century" — will be held June 16-20, 2014, at the University of Notre Dame.

Each year, this intensive program brings together teams of academics (minimum three from each college or university) who want to launch a peace studies program; strengthen or develop a new dimension to a peace studies program; or move an established peace studies program to the next level of design and rigor. 

George A. Lopez, an internationally recognized authority on peace studies program development, leads the program. A long-time faculty member at the Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies, Lopez recently began a position at the United States Institute of Peace in Washington, D.C., as Vice President and Director of the Academy for International Conflict Management and Peacebuilding. He continues to plan the Summer Institute and will return to campus next summer for the event.

More information and registration materials will be posted soon.
