Brian is in his second year of the Masters of Art in Conflict Analysis and Dispute Resolution (MACADR) program and is a mentor in the center. In January Brian will go to Paris on the Bosserman UNESCO Fellowship where he will be working at UNESCO Headquarters in the Prevention of Violent Extremism (PVE) unit.
