Examining Conflict to Create Peace: The NSF Grant with Emily VanMeter

In the summer of 2014, several undergraduate and graduate students from the College of Arts & Sciences received a grant from the National Science Foundation. This NSF grant gave them the means to pursue research in various fields as they explored their interests and prepared for their potential futures. In this interview, we speak with Emily VanMeter, a senior Political Science and French Studies major. VanMeter speaks about her research on civil conflict and peacekeeping and how her project helped her explore the unseen processes of academia.
