Please join us at University College in Bath on Friday, January 20 at 5 p.m. to celebrate  the awarding of PeaceWorks’ third annual Peace Studies scholarship and to learn about the University of Maine’s Peace Studies program.

The local group, Greater Brunswick Peace Works, has awarded  this year’s Peace Studies scholarship to Woolwich resident, Gwendolyn Shatto. A University of Maine at Augusta, Bachelor of Arts Liberal Studies student, she will study “Buddhism, Peace and Contemplative Traditions” in the University’s certificate program this semester. Ms. Shatto will be honored at the event.
The University of Maine’s Peace Studies Program focuses on education for peace, justice, human rights, nonviolence, tolerance, global understanding, interdependence and environmental responsibility. Courses in the 18-credit hour undergraduate, interdisciplinary Certificate in Peace and Reconciliation Studies are accessible locally online.

Susanne Jones, last year’s scholarship recipient, will talk about the ways in which the program challenged and supported her worldview. The event will be held at University College at Bath/Brunswick located in the Midcoast Center for Higher Education, 9 Park Street, Bath.

Snow date will be Friday, January 27 at 5.
