College Rotarian attendees were from Arizona, Nevada, California, Oregon, Washington, New Mexico, Canada and Mexico Rotaract Clubs.

Dr. Norton’s talk and group discussion facilitation was about peace and conflict resolution. She gave detailed information about Rotary International’s peace and security certificate and master’s degree fellowships at seven PeaceCenter partner universities around the world.

Rotaract brings together adults ages 18-30 to take action in their communities, develop their leadership and professional skills, and have fun. Rotary clubs, like Rotary Club of Scottsdale, sponsor Rotaract Clubs.

Rotaract members manage and fund their clubs independently. College students and young professionals join Rotaract Clubs to participate in hands-on community and international service projects; enjoy social activities; utilize development opportunities and network with local, national and international young leaders.

Dr. Norton serves as Rotary International’s District 5510 Peace Fellow Chair. As Peace Fellow Chair, she assists Rotary Clubs and applicants with the process to apply for certificates in peace and conflict studies or obtain a master’s degree related to peace and security.

Dr. Norton shares information about Rotary International Peace Fellowship inclusions, eligibility requirements, application insights and the program’s Peace Center University Partners (located in Australia, England, Japan, Sweden, United States and Thailand).
