Peace Scholars Selected
Mar 14, 2012Adam Mousel '13 and Howard Mukanda '14 will represent Concordia in the 2012 Peace Prize Forum Scholars program.
The program will be June 18-Aug. 3 at the University of Oslo's International Summer School. Students will receive a general introduction to peace and conflict studies, and to the work of peace organizations and institutions in Norway.
Mousel, Northfield, Minn., is majoring in history and psychology. He wants to continue the dialogue of peace across campus and the community by hosting panel discussions, leading a Tea House dialogue and designing training opportunities for residence hall staff.
Mukanda, Zimbabwe, is majoring in global studies and management information systems. Growing up, Mukanda was exposed to violence as a way of resolving conflict and believes that peace can be attained if the global community invests in teaching and demonstrating nonviolence.
The students were introduced at the Nobel Peace Prize Forum, held earlier this month in Minneapolis. Each year two students from Augsburg, Augustana, St. Olaf and Concordia, plus one student from Luther College are selected as peace scholars.
