Please allow me to publicly welcome Jennifer Magee as Coordinator of the Peace and Conflict Studies program this spring.
Many of you know Jennifer through her work as Associate Director for Student Programs and Training at the Lang Center for Civic and Social Responsibility. Jennifer earned a Post-Graduate Diploma (with commendation) in Peace and Conflict Studies from the University of Ulster, Northern Ireland before developing an interactive conflict resolution curriculum for high school students and founding and directing Peace Initiatives, Inc. She completed her Ph.D. in conflict analysis and resolution from George Mason University and began teaching peace and conflict studies courses at Swarthmore in 2007.
As you can tell, Jennifer brings a wealth of experience working closely with our students and valuable expertise in conflict resolution, peace studies, social action, and community-based learning. Please do not hesitate to direct students to her for advising or for any matters related to the Peace and Conflict Studies program. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Again, we are immensely thankful for Jennifer’s experience and leadership. As you have the opportunity, please welcome her!
