Paul K. Chappell is an international peace educator and founder of Peace Literacy. He graduated from West Point, was deployed to Iraq, and left active duty as a Captain. Realizing that humanity is facing new challenges that require us to become as well-trained in waging peace as soldiers are in waging war, Chappell created Peace Literacy to help students and adults from all backgrounds work toward their full potential and a more peaceful world.

Paul K. Chappell, West Point graduate and Executive Director of the Peace Literacy Institute, will answer questions about the challenges, best practices, and skills needed for peacebuilding as a global citizen, and the role of emerging technology in moving forward the mission of peace. Paul is a keynote speaker at the University of Michigan's Global Scholars Program Annual Global Citizenship in Practice event on December 4th, 2021.
