Chris FrancoisManchester University senior Chris Francois has been named an Ambassador for Peace by the Universal Peace Federation.

The federation is a nonprofit organization with consultative status at the United Nation’s Economic and Social Council.

Ambassadors for Peace are a global network of leaders representing the religious, racial and ethnic diversity of the human family, as well as all disciplines of human endeavor. They stand on the common ground of shared principles, committed to the path of promoting reconciliation, overcoming barriers and building peace.

Ambassadors organize, support or participate in a wide variety of service and relief projects, such as building schools, digging wells or renovating communities in conflict-torn areas.
Francois works with Delice Dental Health Initiative, a nonprofit that has worked since 2015 to improve access to quality dental care in rural and urban Haitian communities. Francois is its co-founder and director of marketing.

At Manchester, Francois is a student assistant at the Peace Studies Institute, president of Amnesty International, founding president and hub coordinator of Sunrise Manchester University, president of the International Association, secretary of the Alpha Mu Gamma Nu Gamma chapter and a resident assistant at Oakwood Hall.

Established by Gladdys Muir in 1948, the Peace Studies Institute and Program in Conflict Resolution at Manchester pioneered as the first undergraduate peace studies program in the world.
