The “North American Conflict Resolution Program: A Cross-cultural Interdisciplinary Experiment in Peace-Building” was an International Academic Mobility project sponsored by FIPSE, HRSDC, and SEP, the federal departments governing post-secondary education in the United States, Canada, and Mexico, respectively.

This particular consortium comprised six signatory partners, two from each country:
Overall, 56 students participated in the program.
In conjunction with the exchange’s academic requirements, students completed an internship/practicum component that afforded them hands-on, practical applications of the theories, techniques, and skills of conflict resolution which they studied in the classroom.
The University of Manitoba sent 12 upper-level undergraduate students abroad for one term each. Participants were selected based on their academic proficiency, declared goals, and adaptability.
