New Indianapolis Peace House
Indianapolis Peace House, a consortium of Manchester, Goshen and Earlham
colleges, has a new associate director: Mary Lind, formerly of Portland
State University in Oregon. She will begin her position Oct. 1 at Peace
House, where college and university students live communally, take
courses and do an internship.
Lind has developed and taught courses about global inequities and
intercultural dialogue at the School of Conflict Resolution at Portland
State University. She holds a master’s in education with emphasis on
conflict resolution. Lind replaces Ruth Hill, who has left the state.
“Mary’s rigorous academic training, her passion for action in a world of
haves and have-nots, her considerable experience in student recruitment,
her eight year experience as a faculty member in conflict
transformation, and her overseas experience all combine into an ideal
candidate,” says Erwin Boschmann, CEO of Indianapolis Peace House.
