Kent State Magazine: New Approaches to Peace
In April 2019, Kent State University welcomed Neil Cooper, Ph.D, as the new inaugural director of Kent State's School of Peace and Conflict Studies.
The School of Peace and Conflict Studies was originally called the Center for Peaceful Change when it was founded in 1971 as the university's first ‘living memorial’ for the events that occurred on May 4th, 1970.
Prior to his arrival, Cooper was head of Peace Studies and International Development at the University of Bradford in the U.K. There he led programs for undergraduate, graduate and doctoral level students through the center of Peace and Conflict Studies.
