I am a program coordinator in Student Activities and Leadership Development at the University of Cincinnati. I serve as an advisor to the University Funding Board and the Student Safety Board. I am also a doctoral candidate seeking a degree in Urban Educational Leadership. I am interested in Peace Studies & Nonviolence Institute because of the opportunity to learn more about how people can work toward reconciling differences and disagreements peacefully. I would also like to be able to bring this training back to the university community in order to teach students, staff and faculty how to take a proactive stance toward issues of social injustice in their academic and professional careers.
