Abstract: In Spring 2013, the Matsunaga Institute for Peace and Conflict Resolution (MIPCR) at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa began a program review process by completing a curriculum map of the Graduate Certificate in Conflict Resolution (GCCR). The 15-credit interdisciplinary certificate is designed to address a set of program-level student learning outcomes (SLO). A curriculum assessment would determine if the GCCR’s Peace and Conflict Education (PACE) courses, as well as GCCR-approved courses from other programs, aligned with these outcomes; reveal whether students had adequate opportunities to achieve the outcomes; and open dialogue among faculty, administrators, and students to discuss student success and program improvement. This poster details the process of assessment, the methods utilized for collecting data, and discusses challenges encountered during the process along with next steps based on the assessment results.
