From October 4-7, IPC along with the Conflict Studies & Dispute Resolution Program faculty welcomed two visitors from Universität Konstanz, Germany: Professor Wolfgang Seibel of the Department of Politics and Management, and Daniel Kirchner, coordinator of the Masters program in International Administration and Conflict Management at Konstanz. The two began their site visit at breakfast with Drs. Cathie Witty, Director of Conflict Studies & Dispute Resolution Program, and Cathryne Schmitz, followed by a meeting with UNCG’s Conflict Studies faculty, including Drs. Sherrill W. Hayes and Tom Matyók.

On the second day of their visit to Greensboro, IPC hosted our Konstanz visitors as they met with Denise Bellamy, Director of Study Abroad & Exchanges, and were taken on a campus tour by Logan Stanfield, Study Abroad Coordinator. After having lunch with Drs. Penelope Pynes and Jerry Pubantz, Dean of Lloyd International Honors College, Professors Seibel and Kirchner took a tour of the International Civil Rights Center and Museum with the Conflict Studies faculty.

The University of Konstanz is one of our state-to-state partners as part of the NC/ Baden-Württemberg program and this visit was a first step in developing collaborative efforts towards a dual degree program.
