Systems of Violence & Mobilizing Campus-Community Connections
Monday, April 7, 2014 :: 5:00pm-7:00pm
Stone Building, Room 186
This presentation – and invitation to dialogue – will focus on genocides and mass atrocities of the 20th century and will explore lessons learned in order to put an end to mass violence and war. McAndrews will also discuss his experiences in mobilizing campus assets (faculty and students) through inter-departmental collaborations for the purpose of engaging the campus community in the areas of genocide/mass atrocities prevention, refugee protection, and human rights advocacy. Engagement does begin at the local level with campus-town alliances with our immigrant and refugee neighbors – and their service organizations – and it goes further to include state-wide, national, and international partnerships.
