Mediator Mentors will celebrate International Day of Conflict Resolution on Monday, Oct. 16, with a panel on the “Religion of Peace” from 4:30 to 6 p.m. in Peters Building 191. Panelists will include representatives from the Jewish, Catholic and Muslim community.

The event will include an award ceremony for the winners of the Mediator Mentors’ 2017 Art Contest. Mediator Mentors is a university-public school partnership in which school children learn conflict resolution skills. Dr. Negin Tahvildary, a professor in the Department of Philosophy, directs the program, under the auspices of the Peace and Conflict Studies program.

In conjunction with the International Day of Conflict Resolution, a peace exhibition is on display in the Diversity Lounge, on the second floor of the Henry Madden Library through the month of October. The exhibition showcases artifacts and symbols that represent peace in different cultures.

International Day of Conflict Resolution is sponsored by the College of Arts and Humanities, Mediator Mentors, the Bonner Family Foundation, the Ethics Center and Peace and Conflict Studies.
