About the Sponsors:
The Matsunaga Institute for Peace and Conflict Resolution was established in 1985 to fulfill the vision of former Senator Spark M. Matsunaga to expose every student enrolled in Hawaiʻi’s public university to peace studies so they could learn and practice peaceful methods of resolving disputes of all kinds from interpersonal to global. Under its new name, the Matsunaga Institute for Peace and Conflict Resolution (MIPCR), positioned in the College of Social Science’s Public Policy Center and combines peace studies research with skills-based training for practical application of alternative dispute resolution methods in its three academic programs: the Certificate in Peace Studies, the Interdisciplinary B.A. in Peace and Conflict Studies, and the Graduate Certificate in Conflict Resolution.
The Association for Conflict Resolution, Hawai‘i (ACR-Hawai‘i) is a member-based nonprofit dedicated to the promoting appropriate conflict resolution. The Association strives to accomplish their mission through members who develop and deliver educational programs and services to the community.
