Our second mini-interview series looks at the concept of finding hope in the peacebuilding field. When asked where Dasheel Kaur finds her hope, she eloquently stated: I find hope in and through my work "when people reclaim the concept of peacebuilding towards anti-oppression, self-determination and collective liberation." #CJPSPI

EMU was happy to welcome over 100 students of the incoming fall class this past weekend for Student Orientation, Advising and Registration (SOAR). Most spent the night in dorms and all left with their course schedules in hand. It was a fun way to get to know the campus and meet new friends! Another SOAR is scheduled for June.

Efforts to track EMU's nitrogen footprint have enhanced sustainability efforts thanks to Laura Cattell Noll ’09, a graduate student in environmental sciences UVa Graduate School of Arts & Sciences, and sustainability coordinator Jonathan Lantz-Trissel.

Homelessness wasn’t something Abby Hershberger was familiar with while growing up in Millersburg, Ohio, a town of about 3,500 residents. “It didn’t happen to people I knew,” she says. “It didn’t happen to my friends or family. I just wasn’t exposed to it.” During a spring semester at Eastern Mennonite University’s Washington Community Scholars’ Center, […]

With Session II in full swing, our first mini-series comes to an end: Peacebuilder Garly Michel finds it very important for everyone to be working towards a better environment because "as human beings we naturally create tension". For him, peacebuilding work is an obligation. He asserts that it is vital for us as fellow human beings to understand, internalize and take action, thus creating change for a better future. Garly works in Haiti, specifically looking a trauma resilience, conflict transformation, community development and peacebuilding projects in his own community and beyond. He desires to empower community leaders so they can build up their own resiliency, enabling them to identify where change is needed and then take action. #CJPSPI
