Having connections within Peace and Conflict Studies, both to students and professors, that stretch back years has made the learning journey more enjoyable and fulfilling. There's nothing better than stepping into class on the first day and seeing familiar faces!
PHILIP ZUIDEMA, 4th year Peace and Conflict Studies and Political Science
Since beginning my degree in Peace and Conflict Studies, I have gained a much better understanding of what connection involves and the importance of feeling connected with others. PACS is inherently rooted in community values and encourages students to consider how their actions impact others, both on a micro and macro level. The sense of connection within PACS has allowed to me build relationships with other students and professors who care as deeply about social issues as I do.
ERIKA ROSE SHEA, 3rd year Peace and Conflict Studies
Studying both Music and PACS together helps me better understand how to live in harmony with the world. Music can be a wonderful way of connecting with others and building community. Peace and Conflict Studies has helped me understand the importance of taking action in the communities I am a part of and seeing things from another's point of view. I love making music with others and learning ways music can be a tool in peacebuilding.
SELAH WOELK, 3rd-Year Arts, Music and Peace and Conflict Studies
Despite online learning during my MPACS program since 2020, as a Grebel alumnus, I was able to keep previous relationships and build new ones. As a student, I felt that the Grebel community always had my back and was interested not only in my academic milestones but also in my well-being and skills as a student. I appreciate the faculty, staff, students, friends, and the donor community who have relentlessly supported and shown love through my education and career journey for the past 12 years! Indeed, Grebel is a global village. Grebel continues to provide a holistic approach, where connections are valued and people and students are put at the centre stage of learning and interactions.
