It was a privilege to host Tessy for several sessions during the Summer Peacebuilding Institute, one of two Winston Fellows in 2017. "Gusim-Ndasule hopes to train Christian and Muslim women together in conflict transformation skills and form a group to visit rural communities and Internally Displaced Persons camps. The sight of women of different faiths coming together to promote a culture of peace “will send a strong message to the women in the camps who are nursing grievances and holding onto grudges for what has been done to them.” To find out more about the Winston Fellowship, visit: http://emu.edu/cjp/spi/scholarship-fellowship/winston-fellowship/

Drink deep from the fountain... enjoying beautiful clear summer days on a busy campus. Recent events have included the Summer Peacebuilding Institute, the 25th Shenandoah Valley Bach Festival, a conference "Crossing the Line: Women of Anabaptist Traditions Encounter Borders and Boundaries," and the second annual conference for Restorative Justice for Educators, hosted by the Center for Justice and Peacebuilding at EMU. In addition, hundreds of guests for basketball, volleyball, running camps, reunions and conferences for other groups and denominations are on campus. And finally, many students are taking graduate and undergraduate courses, online, on site in Harrisonburg and through EMU at Lancaster. Summer is its own special time at EMU!

Personal awareness and resilience, commitment to a bottom line that serves the common good and integration of values such as restorative justice make EMU's organizational leadership graduate programs like no other... one might be perfect for you!
