New Endowed Peace Studies Chair at Ohio State University

A newly established endowed chair will enable the Ohio State University to pursue in-depth studies of non-violent resolutions to conflict as well as other peace-related issues. The Chair in Peace Studies, an initiative of the Ohio Council of Churches, was established with $1.25 million in gifts to the university from Erie and Orlyss Sauder and Sauder Woodworking Co., several Ohio congregations, faculty, staff and friends. A national multi-disciplinary search is under way for a senior faculty member, who will join the Mershon Center as chairholder. Trustees approved the chair this September of 2003.
