The Purpose

Inspired by a desire to address growing divisiveness in the United States and around the world, this initiative will embed the principles and practice of conflict transformation in the full continuum of a liberal arts education, from high school through graduate school.

Middlebury will serve as the incubator for the development of a research base, pedagogical tools, and student experiences that will reach across multiple states in the U.S. and more than 100 partner universities around the world.
