The Role of International Education in Peacebuilding, 8:00am - 10:00am, Holcombe Hall Classroom, Through international education, students become more effective communicators, more engaged citizens, and learn to think critically about the relationships between local and global issues. These skills are all vital to building peace in a world full of conflict. To celebrate this capacity of international education during International Education Week, NAFSA: Association of International Educators, the United States Institute of Peace, and the Alliance for Peacebuilding invite you to a free panel discussion on the role of international education in peacebuilding. Experts in conflict resolution and peacebuilding will: 
  • Provide a high-level overview of the ways in which international engagement and global learning can help mitigate conflict and empower individuals to become peacebuilders
