The Friends Association for Higher Education conference, which was to be held at Earlham College this June, has been postponed by one year. The exact dates are still being determined but it will be held at Earlham College and the Earlham School of Religion possibly June 8-10, 2021. We will have the same focus planned for this year: Peacemaking and the Liberal Arts.
As a non-profit membership organization, FAHE relies on conference fees and membership dues for most of its budget. Please stay engaged with FAHE during this year by becoming a member or renewing your membership.
We’ll continue to publish our bimonthly newsletter and are working on finding ways to stay engaged with our members during these challenging times.
“Peacemaking and the Liberal Arts”
The Quaker peace testimony calls us to work actively for the just and peaceful transformation of conflict, and for the removal of causes of violence and injustice. As educators at Quaker and non-Quaker institutions, what roles do peacemaking and social concern play in your context of higher education? Given the changing landscape of higher education when there is pressure to make education focus more intentionally on career-oriented preparation, what is the future of programs (both curricular and co-curricular) specializing in peacemaking and social justice?
When we’re able to determine new dates in 2021, please join us as we consider these topics, as well as others that concern Friends testimonies in higher education.
