The Center is busy welcoming back students, faculty, and staff to URI as the new academic year begins. We are especially eager to welcome those students who completed their certification as Kingian Level I and Level II trainers during last spring semester and this summer during the International Nonviolence Summer Institute. The numbers of URI students who are becoming involved with nonviolence through the interdisciplinary minor and/or the certification training courses is growing. We are excited about doubling our nonviolence and peacce programs efforts on campus this year with these outstanding trainers working with the Center. Fasten your seat belts, nonviolence and peace studies is taking off this fall at URI!
