“The act of Compassionate Listening is an embodiment of the core definition of compassion, which means ‘to suffer with.’ To feel that depth of connection with another we must find the place within us that also suffers.” - A. S. Cohen, Practicing the Art of Compassionate Listening, 2011
The Diplomacy, Non-Governmental Organizations and Peacebuilding concentration provides a foundation for students interested in pursuing careers that emphasize mediation and bridge building in non-profit transnational organizations.
