“I am excited to be a Millennium Fellow and am thrilled to work with peers who are committed to a sustainable transformation of our environment and are promoting just institutions in our society.”
Millennium Fellowship Project
In promoting the 7th UNAI principle of advancing peace and conflict resolution through education and the 16th SDG of just, peaceful and inclusive societies, the Scheinman Conflict Resolution Club (SCRC) seeks expose students to conflict resolution techniques and experiences such as mock negotiations, skills workshops, Q&A’s, simulations and other events with various practitioners and faculty experts. The SCRC plans to create and promote events which will encourage students to develop frameworks for accountability in their communities through engaging with student dispute resolution opportunities, practicing their skills with both faculty and practitioners, and discussing national issues surrounding dispute resolution.
