WASHINGTON, PA (March 21, 2023) – Washington & Jefferson College will host Ms. Stacia George, the director of the Conflict Resolution Program at The Carter Center. George’s talk, “The Final Hill To Climb: The Global Need for Accountability,” is part of Washington & Jefferson College’s annual Walter K. Levy Lecture series. The lecture will be held Tuesday, March 28, 2023, at 7 p.m. in the Rossin Campus Center Ballroom. This event is free and open to the public.
George’s work at The Carter Center concentrates on the prevention, mitigation, and resolution of conflicts to build transformative and sustainable peace.
