Third group graduates from Rotary peace program
Chulalongkorn's beautiful campus is considered a national treasure in Thailand.
The Rotary Foundation’s third group of students studying peace and conflict resolution at a university in Bangkok, Thailand, graduated from their intensive, three-month program on 14 September.
The 20 students, who hail from 13 countries and received financial aid from the Foundation, earned certificates in peace and conflict studies from Chulalongkorn University for completing the Rotary Peace and Conflict Studies program.
The program is aimed at professionals working for governmental and nongovernmental organizations. Graduates are expected to return to their jobs and apply the skills they’ve learned. The first class of students graduated in September 2006. The next group will begin studying in January.
The graduates include a staff correspondent for a newspaper in India, a deputy police superintendent from Nigeria, a teacher from the United States, and a program coordinator for a nongovernmental organization in Tajikistan.
