Peace Scholar Named
Gururaj is a native of Michigan who lives with his wife on the north side of Chicago. His leadership potential was first recognized by Rotary when his hometown Rotary club selected him to participate in Rotary Youth Leadership Awards. His academic background includes a master’s degree in international peace and conflict resolution, and his career has reflected his deep commitment to mediation and coalition building. He is currently a conflict management consultation and an educator at American University’s School of International service. His ability to apply his academic work to practical situations is impressive and demonstrated extensively by his professional pursuits. In addition, his good humor and personable approach will enable him to take the tools from Chulangakorn and use them effectively in the future.
