CAHSS Inclusive Campus Conversations (Campus Inclusion)

During the 2019-2020 Academic Year, the College of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences (CAHSS) is offering a forum called Inclusive Campus Conversations for graduate and undergraduate students, as well as professors and staff, at a venue for the entire NSU community to come together and exchange ideas, insights and experiences. This forum has its roots in two former CAHSS programs, Diversity Dialogues, which was founded in 2006, and Intellectual Conversations, starting in Fall 2015 but itself growing out of a lecture program called Faculty Lecture Series which started in 2007. Inclusive Campus Conversations takes place once a month; topics and speakers vary, but we hope that the perspectives and insights of students, faculty, staff, and alumni, as well as community members, will make each conversation meaningful, thought-provoking, and educational. Inclusive Campus Conversations provides all Sharks an opportunity to engage with at least three of NSU's core values: Academic Excellence, Diversity, and Community. If you have suggestions for upcoming conversations and would like to be among the presenters, please contact Associate Professor Stephen Levitt at or Associate Professor Robin Cooper at

Campus Diversity Dialogues (Campus Inclusion)

Nova Southeastern University (NSU) is a majority-minority institution, with students from at least 116 countries, as well as a university recognized as a Hispanic Serving Institution (HIS). As such, we find ourselves with the unique opportunity to invite all members of our community to learn from and appreciate others and to create a learning community that exemplifies inclusiveness and respect for diversity.

We are committed to educating our students, interacting with colleagues, and engaging with our campus community in a manner that is respectful of all cultural traditions and practices, gender identities, sexual orientations, age, religious/spiritual beliefs, and in all areas that distinguish individuals.

Diversity Dialogues were held on the first Tuesday of each month in 2019 and are now being offered under the name “Inclusive Campus Conversations” ( Topics and presenters change monthly, but what is constant is the freedom to exchange ideas in a respectful environment.

Peace and Conflict Studies Journal Conference (Peace & Conflict Studies)

PCSJ Conference
January 16-17, 2025

"Finding and fostering hope in violent times"

As civil society races to demand peaceful and durable political solutions to global conflicts, and as institutions continue to fail to be able to provide them, what is the role of peace and conflict resolution studies? Where can we find and foster hope in violent times? What role does nonviolent resistance, peace education, human rights education, and similar strategies play? How can dialogue, diplomacy, mediation, and other tools of conflict resolution offer hope? What extant theories can we turn to, or what theories do we need to co-create, to address current drivers of violence? In way ways do we need to better understand inequalities of power in order to interrupt and de-escalate violence? How we can more fully center voices that continue to be marginalized so as to better develop and sustain meaningful peace processes? Our 4th annual Peace and Conflict Studies Journal conference welcomes theory building, empirical research, and insights from practice that speak to these urgent questions.

Prospective presenters should submit a proposal (approx. 300 words) to the Journal by April 30, 2024. The link is here.

The proposal should convey the findings, methodology (if applicable), and contributions of the study to the field of peace and conflict resolution. Qualitative, quantitative, and mixed-methods studies, as well as empirically-grounded practitioner perspectives, are welcomed. Please specify as asked in the submission form if you plan to present on-campus or virtually.

Further guidance may be obtained from the general description for PCS that follows. The Journal’s website is at here.

Universal Declaration of Human Rights Symposium

Celebration of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights 75th Anniversary

Established in the aftermath of the horrors of the Second World War, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights represents an unprecedented affirmation of human dignity and of the preciousness of each and every human life. This value is enshrined in rights to be protected, everywhere, universally, by governments and others exercising political authority over the citizenry. Limited to a declaration – and so not a legally binding document – the UDHR has nonetheless inspired and catalyzed over 70 human rights treaties that have served to renovate laws and craft a culture of respect, and human decency, in countless parts of the world. This event marks the 75th anniversary of the Declaration and is at once a celebration of human rights and an opportunity to connect with the pressing challenges to the full enjoyment of those rights today.

Hosted by the Department of Conflict Resolution Studies, the Alvin Sherman Library, and the Halmos College of Arts and Sciences, the event is intentionally crosscutting – to reflect the declaration’s ethos of universality, given form at this celebration through interdisciplinarity and inclusion. The event comprises presentations and workshops on issues of global and local concern with participation from faculty in the Shepard Broad School of Law and Halmos College’s Department of Humanities and Politics as well as by faculty, alumni and students of the Department of Conflict Resolution Studies.
