Launched in September 2014, the Emory Center for Advancing Nonviolence (ECAN) is a six-month development phase effort led by Business Practice Improvement in conjunction with the Office of the President and Campus Life.
ECAN is dedicated to the study and practice of effective and productive human interaction through nonviolent actions. Building on Dr. Bernard LaFayette’s expertise with the teachings of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and the application of these principles, ECAN provides education and training programs aimed at promoting effective, nonviolent human interaction. ECAN programming is applicable to diverse audiences ranging from corporate clients to university students.
The Office of Business Practice Improvement is providing project management, development guidance, assistance with the development of program materials, and offering administrative support to the ECAN project.
