Event Date: May 17, 2017 - 5:30 p.m.
Location: Integrated Sciences Complex, 3rd Floor, Room 3300

Join our conflict resolution students as they present their master's projects or thesis. 

Students have designed projects that integrate the knowledge and skills acquired during their training. Projects take a wide variety of forms, including

  • empirical research
  • apprenticeships with professionals or agencies
  • evaluations and/or analysis of existing practices
  • the creation of new dispute resolution programs or curricula, tailored to specific, identified, unmet needs
  • other projects proposed by students which meet the project criteria.

Each project culminates in a work product, such as a research paper or written account of the applied project that demonstrates substantial progress beyond previous learning.

Projects being presented listed below: 

Nanore Barsoumian - Struggling for Memory: Beyond Genocide Commemorations in Turkey 

Leila Dieye - Observing the experience of racism through social backgrounds (thesis)

Kweta Henry - Untapped Potential: Developing a UMass Boston Graduate Peer-to-Peer Support Network
