WHAT: Chancellor Marty Meehan will host a luncheon announcing the establishment of the Dana McLean Greeley Endowment for Peace Studies.
For more than 15 years, UML’s Peace and Conflict Studies Institute (PACSI) has been hosting forums to educate the campus and the community about issues of peace and conflict resolution. A major grant from the Greeley Foundation for Peace and Justice in Concord, Mass., will now be used to create an endowment that will bring a visiting peace scholar to the campus and region each year to work with PACSI to expand its efforts to promote education, research and practice concerning peace and conflict issues.
Members of the Greeley Foundation and Greeley family will be in attendance at this event. The specific amount of the endowment will be announced at the luncheon.
WHERE: Alumni Hall, One University Ave., UML North, Lowell
