This year, a group of Political Science students at Yale University tagged along electronically with Saint Mary’s students participating in the Northern Ireland Conflict Resolution Program trip to Belfast. “Our colleagues at Yale recognize Saint Mary’s as a leader in this type of experiential programming,” says Bridget Brownlow MA’12, SMU’s Conflict Resolution Advisor and President of Peaceful Schools International. “Yale is interested in the model we use to engage with schools and communities.” The students Skyped into the SMU team’s discussions with
ex-combatants who are now working toward peace.
