Former Kellogg Doctoral Affiliate Garrett FitzGerald

Former Kellogg Doctoral Affiliate Garrett FitzGerald, a 2020 PhD graduate in peace studies and political science, has accepted a position as assistant professor of peace and justice studies, part of the Women's and Gender Studies Department, at Pace University in New York City. 

He is looking forward to working with a diverse group of students at Pace, and to see how this new teaching role helps him to grow as a peace educator.. 

“What could be more exciting than teaching in the heart of New York City? One of the most rewarding aspects of my teaching at Notre Dame has been helping students link big-picture peace and justice issues to the University's local context by connecting them to South Bend community activists and local service opportunities,” said FitzGerald. “I can't wait to explore similar opportunities in a place like New York City and to engage with all that New York has to offer as an extension of the classroom.”

FitzGerald holds a PhD from the University of Notre Dame, an MTS degree from Harvard Divinity School (religion, ethics, and politics) and a BA in peace & conflict studies and religious studies from Guilford College. Before coming to Notre Dame, he served for five years as the head of development for the International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War, a Nobel Peace Prize-winning non-governmental organization dedicated to nuclear abolition and armed violence reduction.
