I received a BA from Mount Holyoke College and a PhD from Ohio State (1980). Before coming to UH in 1985, I was Director of Peace Studies at Colgate University, and a Scholar-in-Residence at Radcliffe. I direct the Hawai'i Model United Nations, and I participate in the UH’s Conflict Resolution program.
