Out of the Darkness Walk

We will be joining with thousands of people nationwide to walk in the Stephens City Walk, benefiting the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP), and we would appreciate any support that you give for this worthwhile cause.

The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention is at the forefront of research, education and prevention initiatives designed to reduce loss of life from suicide. With more than 39,000 lives lost each year in the U.S. and over one million worldwide, the importance of AFSP’s mission has never been greater, nor our work more urgent.

David Smith: Peacebuilding and Conflict Resolution

Lord Fairfax Community College Student Life welcomes David Smith, renowned conflict resolution trainer this Thursday, October 15, 2015.

FOR STUDENTS ONLY: “It’s a Conflicted World Out There: Ways to Becoming a Peacebuilder and Conflict Resolver” 11:00am-12:15pm, Thompson Conference Center (Middletown), distanced to Room 115 (Fauquier)

Conflict resolution trainer David J. Smith will share with students insights into dealing with conflict. He will explore skill sets that students can develop and apply in their professional and personal lives. Increasingly today employers are recognizing that “soft skills” including the ability to negotiate, problem-solve and work in teams are more important than ever. These and other aptitudes will be considered.

FOR FACULTY ONLY: “Peacebuilding and Conflict Resolution: Considering Approaches to Teaching in Community Colleges” 12:30pm-2:00pm, Thompson Conference Center (Middletown), distanced to Room 115 (Fauquier)

David J. Smith, editor of Peacebuilding in Community Colleges: A Teaching Resource (USIP Press, 2013), will share with educators interdisciplinary approaches to considering conflict and building peace in course work including in the liberal arts, general education, and career education. Studies show that for students to succeed today, they need to develop skills and approaches to dealing with differences. In this workshop, educators will explore activities and lessons they can infuse into their present courses.
