BENEFITING: Claremont Lincoln University
In the last several weeks, the world has witnessed tremendous increased violence in different parts of the world, conflict that is rooted in religious difference. Sadly, it has intensified in the Middle East, Eastern Europe, Africa and parts of Asia. Hundreds of lives have been lost and communities destroyed. While much of these horrors take place overseas, our own American communities are faced with challenges of religious pluralism. Society needs people equipped with the skill set to bring harmony and peace making.
While we typically feel powerless in the face of such violence, Claremont Lincoln University (CLU) has configured new solutions to solving problems particular to conflict resolution. It is a curriculum that teaches compassion, dialog, collaboration, respecting difference, and promoting positive social change. Envision an academic program where Israeli and Palestinian students might study beside each other to reduce conflict. Imagine a learning environment where students from all across the globe, come together, to find commonalities that span borders, cultures
Through a new Global Peacemakers Fellowship Program, Claremont Lincoln University will offer full-paid scholarships to qualified, young professionals to pursue a master of arts degree in Interfaith Action at CLU. Our degree is intended for leaders in faith-based organizations, religious communities, non-profit organizations, government and other public arenas in which religious multiplicity can be a source of conflict, yet also has the potential to become a rich resource for positive change.
Help us bring this vision to fruition. During tragic times we read about in the news daily, we are vividly reminded that our world is in need of global healing and understanding. We at Claremont Lincoln University are prepared to do our part in helping to make a global impact for peace. Will you join us?
