INDIANAPOLIS PEACE HOUSE
I am on the brink of teaching a course for the third consecutive semester at Indianapolis Peace House, an emerging presence for peace learning and community justice studies in the city. A Plowshares Project initiative supported by Lilly Endowment, Indianapolis Peace House invites college students to spend a semester immersed in community peace and justice challenges; students live together in this grand old Near Northside house, serve a peace & justice internship in a local non-profit, and complete six hours of classes. I am growing with "Introduction to Urban Issues of Peace and Justice," a three credit-hour course that explores the dynamics of urban development and community life through its conflicts and resolutions in a specific setting we call Indianapolis. This semester, six students from Goshen College, Earlham College, Indiana University-East, and University of Indianapolis are enrolled in IPH. I look forward to the exploration and discovery with them.
