First Ever Master's Program on Coexistence Offered

The Alan B. Slifka Foundation has awarded Brandeis University (Waltham, Massachusetts) $5 million to establish a master's degree program on coexistence in regions of conflict, to strengthen undergraduate programs on coexistence, and for outreach efforts by the International Center for Ethics, Justice, and Public Life.

The $5 million Slifka program will replace the existing Brandeis Initiative in Intercommunal Coexistence, which Slifka also funded, and continues the school's grass-roots efforts in Sri Lanka, South Africa, Northern Ireland, the Middle East, and other strife-riven areas.

An undergraduate component of the program will be implemented July 1, while the graduate program will take about two years to put into place, said Daniel Terris, who directs the affiliated International Center for Ethics, Justice and Public Life at Brandeis.

All three components of the Slifka Program in Intercommunal Coexistence will emphasize the ethical dimension of coexistence work, and will highlight the particular contributions of the arts and humanities to peacebuilding practice. Through collaborations between scholars and practitioners, both in and out of the classroom, Brandeis University will become a focal point for generating and disseminating knowledge in these two areas.

For further information about the Slifka Program in Intercommunal Coexistence, please email Lesley Yalen, program coordinator.
