About the Program

The Center for Peacemaking in partnership with the Southeastern Wisconsin Initiative for CRS sponsors an international program to engage Marquette faculty and students in the work of CRS in Ethiopia.

For this program, one faculty member, one Center for Peacemaking staff member, and up to three students will travel with a delegation of other Milwaukee educators and philanthropists to one of CRS's international peacebuilding sites.

The faculty member on the trip will be responsible for contributing their expertise to a CRS project and conduct research on the effectiveness of the project. The students involved will learn about international peace building through examining the CRS development projects.
