Maja Subasic, International Peace and Conflict Resolution (IPCR) program coordinator, Dr. Amy Cox, director of the IPCR program, and Dr. Jennifer Riggan, associate professor of international studies, attended “Teaching Peace in the 21st Century 7th Annual Summer Peacebuilding Institute for Faculty” at the University of Notre Dame, sponsored by the Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies and the United States Institute for Peace.

The conference featured sessions on the international peace field and current trends in peace studies. Through meetings with consultants, peace studies scholars, and international faculty, the Arcadia group explored methods for strengthening and improving the University’s Master of Arts in IPCR program to better serve students with the most current knowledge, resources, and skills needed to succeed in the field.
