This program consists of two courses at Nelson Mandela University. These courses are part of NMU's mid-year program. Students will take both courses. In CMST 402 Conflict Management South Africa students will learn about conflict management and transformation in a national context as well as from a South African perspective. The program director, Jeff Ringer, will relate how the national level concepts apply to conflicts on a person-to-person level. The second course, CMST 302 Conflict Management Community Engagement Project, will involve students going to a township in South Africa and providing a summer camp for the kids of a school. The activities that we engage in with the students will include conflict management activities.
