Charles E. Scheidt Faculty Fellows in Atrocity Prevention: Call for Nominations

The Institute for Genocide and Mass Atrocity Prevention (I-GMAP) at Binghamton University has pioneered the Charles E. Scheidt Faculty Fellows in Atrocity Prevention program to engage faculty in a guided process of learning and exploration of the potential for their own disciplines to contribute to atrocity prevention. Fellows learn from I-GMAP’s faculty, staff and practitioner visitors and alongside faculty from a wide range of disciplines both within their cohort and from previous cohorts. The program culminates with each faculty member modifying at least one of their own courses to integrate an atrocity prevention lens through innovative and engaged pedagogical approaches.

The upcoming program runs from September 2022 through April 2023 (excluding winter intercession), primarily in an online and asynchronous format, with synchronous meetings at the start and finish of the program, and successful completion of the fellowship comes with a financial award.

Master of Science in Genocide and Mass Atrocity Prevention

The Master of Science in Genocide and Mass Atrocity Prevention (GMAP) is the first and only graduate degree of its kind.

This professional degree prepares graduates to analyze risk factors, formulate strategies, and implement policies and practices to reduce the occurrence, severity, and potential for
reoccurrence of genocides and other mass atrocities around the world. With a focus on the application of an atrocity prevention lens, the program educates students to recognize opportunities to engage in upstream (before conflict), midstream (during conflict) and downstream (post-conflict) prevention measures. Through an interdisciplinary approach integrating classroom learning, applied research, engagement with practitioners, and an intensive field placement, the program prepares graduates to be prevention actors at the micro- (individual), meso- (organizational), and macro- (societal) levels.

The program is University-wide and overseen by the Institute for Genocide and Mass Atrocity Prevention which reports to the Provost.
