Help Support our Students
Our School aims to educate professionals who will promote conflict resolution and peacebuilding at the local, national and global levels. With over 60 current students, 400 alumni, and over 4,000 professionals who have trained with us, we have conflict management professionals all over the world. Our workshops have trained local mediators, Ombuds, and human resource professionals from small businesses, to family businesses and large corporations.
Our faculty, students, and alumni work with refugees, battered women, and war survivors in the United States and around the globe. These local and international experiences are what keep our mission in focus: to prepare engaged, interdisciplinary change-makers with rigorous academic and practice skills.
How You Can Help
We exist to make a difference. We need external support to achieve our goal of being one of the best conflict management, peacebuilding and development Schools in the world. Offering scholarships and fellowships is instrumental in attracting top students. For example, a fellowship of $20,000 could support a graduate student working to address gender-based violence in the developing world, or for a student actively promoting justice and democracy in post-conflict societies, or for a student utilizing data science to create early warning systems. Larger donations could support endowed professorships, speaker series, or even a building to pay tribute to the donor or memorial. With such contributions, our students will not only promote change on a global scale, but they will help make the vision of the School of Conflict Management, Peacebuilding and Development a reality.
