Dawson College marks anniversary of shooting with new Centre for Peace Education

September 16, 2014

Quebec’s Dawson College has announced that it will establish the Centre for Peace Education to commemorate the 8th anniversary of the deadly on-campus shooting that injured 20 people and killed one student. The centre’s core offering is a certificate program in Peace Studies that will educate students in violence prevention and conflict resolution and allow them to view other courses and programs through the lens of peace and nonviolence. The new certificate program “aims to prepare students to work for justice and to prepare for peace in any context, whether in their personal or professional lives, their communities, in society, or on a global scale.” CBC
