ACU Chapter of Mediators Beyond Borders Gives Students a World of Opportunity
Dr. Garry Bailey, academic director and associate professor at the Duncum Center, recently announced the establishment of the ACU Chapter of Mediators Beyond Borders (MBB). Operating completely on volunteer service, MBB is an organization of mediation professionals interested bringing peace and reconciliation to conflict hotspots around the world. Projects are currently being developed in Ecuador, Israel, Columbia, Liberia and Sierra Leone.
The ACU Chapter of MBB creates a wide range of practicum opportunities for students. Specifically, interested Duncum Center students are encouraged to participate through research, fundraising, or even going on location. The ACU chapter offers 20 student memberships for $10 per year. Once the first 20 memberships are filled, dues will be $18 per year. Additionally, the Chapter offers student leadership roles including president, vice-president, secretary, treasurer, and communications director. When leadership roles are filled, leadership and membership will establish regular online meeting times. Meetings will be held with other MBB chapters as well. Chapter members are also invited to attend MBB’s Annual Congress meeting.
