Ware Colloquium on Peacemaking consists of the Center's signature event, the Ware Lecture on Peacemaking, the Ware Seminars on Global Citizenship and the Ware Practicum in Conflict Resolution. The colloquium is made possible by a generous grant from Judy S. '68 and Paul W. Ware of Lancaster, Pa. The Ware Lecture has brought Nobel Peace Prize recipients and former presidents from around the world to Elizabethtown.

 2016 Ware Lecture


Ever wonder what happened to "the girl in the picture?" A photograph of a young girl running naked down a road, her skin on fire with napalm, changed the way the world viewed not just the Vietnam War but all wars. The "girl in the picture" is Kim Phuc. Join her as she shares her story of resilience, forgiveness, and reconciliation in the 2016 Ware Lecture.

Kim Phuc, as a child, runs down the road, her skin burning with napalm.
