Program Mentors

Students will be assigned a Religion and Conflict Transformation Mentor. The program mentor’s role is different from the students’ faculty academic advisor. Mentoring will be directed toward helping the student navigate through program expectations, including course selection and practicum placement. While student advisors are responsible for all academic advising, including course selection, the mentor is available to help students in cases where an academic advisor might not be too familiar with the RCT program itself. Mentors also facilitate the reflection and discernment process for students’ vocational goals in peacebuilding/ religion and conflict transformation.

The program Mentors are:
