Building Community/Building Peace

Instructor Name: 
Debbie Kaufman
Course Description: 

Based on the study series by Beyond War, students will be challenged to examine their assumptions about war and to become part of building peace through building community.  Following the Beyond War Core Practice: I will work with others to build a world beyond war, students will explore the role of community in building peace from the personal to the international levels through their own work and interactions with Returned Peace Corps Volunteers.  The course will include theoretical readings and discussions, practical experiences and skill-building, and hands-on community-building work.  Regular attendance and openness to diverse views are important for success in this class, as well as a solutions orientation and the willingness to genuinely participate.
