Her professors, cohorts and IPCR alumni helped her work through trauma as she worked on her degree. “They actually care about my well-being as a person … It’s actually a family.”

There have been at least 200 school shootings since Sandy Hook in 2012; far more if you go back to Columbine. School should be a place where students feel safe, not where they need to stage protests because of mass shootings. We need change, and we need it now.

IPCR 20th Anniversary Celebration
As a student in the IPCR program, I am appalled that two discussions providing constructive dialogue of previous statements have been deleted. If stated that faculty members are prepared to assist in dialogue regarding contentious acts of aggression towards black men then they should be able to carry dialogue regarding acts of macro and micro-aggressions that they perpetuate. It seems that true dialogue in our program is not validated unless it derives from our professors. Many times are comments are not welcomed or validated.
Did you know IPCR is hosting this year's Peace and Justice Studies Annual Conference Sept 27-30? The call for proposals is out now and we are looking for sponsors as well. Read all about it below.

Announcing the 2018 PJSA Conference!
Register now!
The 2018 conference of the Peace and Justice Studies Association will be hosted by the International Peace and Conflict Resolution program at Arcadia University in Glenside/Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The conference will run from September 28-30 2018, with a full day of pre-conference events and a keynote on September 27.

Our theme this year is “Revolutionary Nonviolence in Violent Times: 50 Years since 1968.”

Both today and fifty years ago, violence and nonviolence were used as tactics as well as strategies. One might argue that progress towards peace evades us. It isn’t particularly clear how to bring about sustainable change and progress. Are our notions and definitions of what constitutes violence and nonviolence oversimplified? What exactly has changed, if anything? What does revolutionary nonviolence, pacifism, and militancy look like in the past and in the present political environment? What lessons and ideas still resonate?

Conference Submissions:
The PJSA conference welcomes submissions from academics, scholar-practitioners, students, advocates and activists. Submissions can include films and creative works, skills-building workshops, individual research papers or panels, and interactive roundtable discussions. The call for papers can be found here.

In the past we have had books signed by the authors, handmade art and jewelry from our friends across the globe, mounted pictures and other prints, timeshares in exciting locales, and more.
