What is Nonviolence
Great Thinkers
Conflict Resolution
Culture of Peace

Nonviolence is not a garment to be put on and off at will. Its seat is in the heart, and it must be an inseparable part of our very being. Gandhi

The C.W. Post Campus of Long Island University is a large private and comprehensive university with over 11,000 students enrolled in its more then 340 degree programs, some of which are also conducted in other parts of the world. Because of the diversity of the student population and the current influences of global communication, faculty and students have become more sensitive to the issues of multiculturalism and the need for the appreciation of the lifestyles and background of people from many nations. The B. Davis Schwartz Memorial Library is the academic library for this campus and has established this site to promote the acceptance and understanding among ethnic and racial cultures and create an awareness of nonviolent methods of conflict resolution.

This site contains valuable resources, selected links, and contributions (artwork, quotations, slogans, etc) from the C.W. Post Campus community. These online works are part of a  travelling exhibit assembled by the library in 1993, and other entries from 1999, and 2000. The travelling exhibit was requested by several organizations in the area and part of it was displayed at the United Nations for the Season of Nonviolence, January 1999. Some artworks were also presented to schools in Nigeria, at a peace ceremony organized by the United Nations. We now wish to share these works with online viewers. This is a developing site and we will incorporate more and more original artistic and literary works. See entry form, if you would like to participate.
