Living for a peaceful world

September 19, 2011

Michelle Kamen believes in the importance of teaching peace.

“Peace studies is extremely important,” she says. “With the genocides that have happened in the past and are still happening today, we need to learn how to stop them from happening in the future.”

A psychology major who plans to pursue a master’s degree in social work, she feels that Appalachian is the perfect environment for this important mission. “Appalachian is incredibly accepting. The students and faculty are open-minded and my class sizes are small. I feel at home here.”
