Peace & Social Justice Studies comes to HDEV

As of Spring 2009, the Peace & Social Justice Studies Certificate Program is now housed in the Department of Human Development. The program’s director, Dr. Judith Stevenson, is currently in the process of creating a new identity for the program and updating it into a Minor Degree.  The name of the program has been changed to reflect its new mission to study peacemaking through the lens of social and environmental justice.  The program will span multiple disciplines and colleges, including liberal arts, natural sciences, health and human services, the arts, and education.

The Department of Human Development issues a statement about the work of Kevin MacDonald

Over the academic year 2008-2009, the Department, along with colleagues across the College of Liberal Arts, debated and critiqued the controversial work of Kevin MacDonald. The culmination of these discussions resulted in the Department issuing a public statement about his work to clarify our position–for students, other faculty on campus and the public.
