'Bright and inviting' scholar appointed visiting PACS professor

Eric Lepp has been named visiting assistant professor of peace and conflict studies (PACS) at Conrad Grebel University College, Waterloo, Ont., for a two-year appointment. Lepp recently completed a doctorate at the Humanitarian and Conflict Response Institute at the University of Manchester, England. He previously attended the Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies at the University of Notre Dame, where he earned an MA in peace studies, and the University of Waterloo, where he earned a bachelor’s degree in social work. “I was drawn to the position . . . because it offered an opportunity to teach, research and work with students and staff at Grebel and Waterloo who strive to actively build a world that is better than the present state of things,” Lepp says. “Dr. Lepp has wide variety of teaching experience at Wilfrid Laurier [University in Waterloo] and the University of Manchester, where he is known for his enthusiasm for peace and engaging with students,” says Grebel dean Troy Osborne. “Grebelites know Eric as a bright and inviting colleague and are eager to welcome him back.”
