This year marks the 34th annual Collegium of Scholars. The group is comprised of academics and scholars who are committed to research, writing, teaching and mentoring in a wide variety of disciplines and contexts that promote and give support to the work of peace through moral cosmopolitan social responsibility. This year’s theme is “Co-Creating a Culture of Peace Innovation and the Moral Cosmopolitan Way.”

“This honor is significant to me personally,” McCune said. “I began my career as an orator-scholar at the age of 11, reciting Dr. King’s speeches, as well as self-written works inspired by his teaching. I am truly honored and humbled.”
