Kelly Hill is a first year Master of Theological Studies student specializing in Religion and Conflict Transformation. She graduated from Hendrix College in 2008 with a B.A. in International Relations and Global Studies, and from Vanderbilt University in 2010 with a M.Ed. in International Education Policy and Management. Her academic interests include multicultural and interfaith education, civic education, and education in post-conflict settings. After graduating, she hopes to merge her interests in education policy and conflict transformation by managing youth education programs or developing educational policies for future generations of sustainable peace.
“Thus far, the Religion and Conflict Transformation program has provided an excellent space – both during class and at the yearly retreat – for reflection and personal growth. For a student who is more used to looking at conflict transformation on the macro-level, the RCT program has provided me with the opportunity to understand conflict on a deeper, intrapersonal level.”
