The Institute’s Visiting Practitioner Program (formerly known as the Practitioners-in-Residence Program) is one of our signature offerings to connect atrocity prevention practitioners with the Binghamton University community.
This highly popular program brings active atrocity prevention practitioners, drawn from a broad range of national and international organizations and institutions, to Binghamton for a week-long stay.
During their residency, Visiting Practitioners:
Meet with faculty, students, staff and university administrators to share their experiences, the work of their agencies, and their views on the prospects for improving atrocity prevention, with a particular focus on enhancing and strengthening collaborations between practitioners and the academic community;
- Visit multiple classes to share their experiences with both undergraduate and graduate students;
- Engage with the campus and broader area community with a public presentation on a prevention-related topic of their choice.
In choosing practitioners to invite, I-GMAP looks for as broad a range as possible of different approaches, backgrounds, experiences, career trajectories, and global regions.
- This gives GMAP students a chance for direct and personal encounters with professionals across the full range of contemporary prevention work.
- It also gives the Institute a valuable opportunity to continue to build and expand its international network of NGO and government partnerships.
- Additionally, the practitioners come from organizations that will be prime locations for the MS in GMAP student field placements and/or future employment.
A quick review of the practitioners who have visited campus in the past and a glimpse at those coming this academic year, provides a great look at the range and depth of experience of our campus visitors.
