Beyond Sound Bites and Stereotypes
The Olive Tree Initiative is a university-based organization that promotes conflict analysis and resolution through rigorous academic preparation, experiential education and leadership development. OTI provides students, faculty and community participants with the education, training and experiences needed to better understand, negotiate and resolve conflicts. We aim to:
  • Foster respectful and informed discourse regarding regional conflicts.
  • Educate students about conflicts by introducing them to a variety of perspectives and academic thought.
  • Build a community of engaged students committed to working for change.
  • Prepare and empower students to become future leaders by providing them with tools, training and professional networks.
