This is a sponsored post on PCDN

Join teams of academics from all over the world who want to launch, strengthen, or expand peace studies programs at their college or university. The Summer Institute is a week full of dialogue and training led by some of the premier peace studies scholars at the University of Notre Dame’s Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies.

The 12th annual Summer Institute will be held June 8-12, 2020, on Notre Dame campus in South Bend, Indiana. The Summer Institute brings together university and college faculty and administrators who would like to develop a new peace and justice studies program, or take their existing peace studies courses and program to the next level of design and rigor. Since its inception, the Summer Institute has enrolled more than 400 faculty from over 120 institutions on five different continents.

Your Hosts

The University of Notre Dame’s Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies, a leading center for interdisciplinary peace studies, based in the Keough School of Global Affairs, has a commitment to the strengthening of peace and justice studies programs, and the training of those who teach, or wish to teach, in this field.

Director and Staff

The Summer Institute is directed by George A. Lopez, an internationally recognized authority on peace studies program development, former Vice President of United States Institute of Peace, and Rev. Theodore M. Hesburgh, C.S.C., Professor Emeritus of Peace Studies at Notre Dame. The Summer Institute is also staffed by over a dozen faculty and staff from the Kroc Institute.                           

Program

Participants will engage with leading thinkers about the contemporary parameters of peace and justice practice, research, and teaching; explore the pedagogical, administrative, and public relations challenges of such programs; and collaborate with their team (ideally two or more faculty members from the same campus or organization) on course development and programming.

Schedule

The Summer Institute begins in the early afternoon, Monday, June 8, and ends at noon on Friday, June 12. Mornings typically feature various sessions and workshops on critical themes in the field and program development. Afternoon sessions allow participants to work intensely with their team and faculty consultants on campus plans.

Costs

$225 per participant (ideally each team should include at least three faculty members from a single institution). Participants are responsible for the cost of transportation to Notre Dame and lodging (dorms and other low-cost alternatives are available). The Kroc Institute covers breakfast, dinner, snacks, and all program materials.
