Martin, Dr. Paul E. Endowment for Conflict Management
Established in 2003, The Dr. Paul E. Martin Endowment for Conflict Management honors Dr. Martin ’35, a man of integrity and responsibility who firmly believes in and is committed to the peaceful resolution of conflict. Events in the United States on September 11, 2001, verified Dr. Martin’s belief in the role of universities to provide essential programs that explore and teach methods by which conflict and change can be managed. Dr. Martin’s generosity will expand the diffusion of conflict management skills in the community and among students -- a long-term, sustainable, and significant contribution to this critical field.
The endowment is designed to support the Center for Conflict Management at The University of Akron in its efforts to provide an academically rigorous, interdisciplinary, and practically grounded analysis of the nature of conflict and violence, and support a wider diffusion of conflict management skills throughout society in the hope that this will support a sober analysis of conflicts at all levels and more cooperative approaches to the conflicts that plague our relationships in families, communities, and among nations.
The endowment also will enhance aspirations made possible through The Dr. Paul E. Martin Scholarship for Conflict Management and The Dr. Paul E. Martin Endowed Chair for Conflict Management. Together, these funds will support the efforts of the Center for Conflict Management to recruit and retain superior faculty members and students; to support teaching, mediation training, research, conferences, debates, workshops, internships, guest speakers and other forms of public service; and to support the mission of the Center for Conflict Management as it evolves over time.
