Peacebuilding Resources

Are you interested in diving deeper into the topic of peacebuilding?

We are partnering with the Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies at the University of Notre Dame and the Catholic Peacebuilding Network throughout the 2016-2017 academic year to bring you cutting edge peacebuilding resources, videos and webinars from experts around the country and from the field.

These resources are part of our Faculty Learning Commons initiative but can be used broadly--in the classroom, for research papers, for a CRS Student Ambassador chapter to learn more or for growth in personal knowledge and understanding.  As we know, violence across the globe is all too common.  It's important for those of us in the university setting to think reflectively, critically, academically and personally on ways we can participate in contributing to a more just and peaceful world.
