War and Peace Fellows

This year-long program brings together students from all disciplines to engage in an ongoing discussion of the social, political, moral and technological dimensions of international conflict and cooperation. 

Each year the War and Peace Fellows help organize a series of events on campus, including presentations by internationally renowned experts, films on topics related to war and peace, and discussions with Dartmouth faculty. They also attend small group events with speakers and learn about the wide range of career paths available for young people considering working on these issues. Fellows are expected to participate in scheduled events in at least two of the three terms (fall, winter, spring).

The year culminates with a weekend in Washington, DC, led by Professor Ben Valentino, War & Peace Studies Coordinator, meeting with policy makers, military officers, think-tank researchers, activists and NGO officials—including many Dartmouth alums—working on issues of war and peace. Students have access to high-level policy makers in the Senate, Pentagon and State Department who are shaping the approach to issues such as human rights, terrorism, military policy, and the environment.
