SOAR (Student Opportunities for Academic Research) Students Erika Salus and Molly Lokitis worked with Denton-Borhaug to create a film drawing from the course "What Is Peace?" and exploring Peace Education at Moravian College and Beyond.  SOAR makes it possible for such students to live on campus during the summer, and also provides them with a living stipend to support their full-time research projects.

In 2016, laying the groundwork for President Obama’s upcoming historic visit to Hiroshima, Secretary of State John Kerry said, "Everyone should visit Hiroshima, and everyone means everyone."  Moravian College is proud to provide an opportunity for students to visit Hiroshima as part of this inaugural InFocus Global Seminar. Students will visit important historical and cultural sites; learn about diverse Japanese perspectives about peace and war; and dip into fun and fascinating aspects of Japanese cuisine, history, entertainment, art, religion and culture. Led by two Moravian College professors, students will explore firsthand the continuing legacy of World War II, be exposed to the history and urgent contemporary questions regarding nuclear weapons, and meet with various individuals and groups who are involved in creative efforts to build peace cultures in Japan and the world.
