The Peacebuilding Symposium will be held April 17 through April 19. The lecture and community engagement series features four Fulbright Scholars visiting San Antonio university campuses, including St. Mary's University, University of the Incarnate Word, Trinity University and Our Lady of the Lake University.

The symposium seeks to engage community conversations about contributing to peacebuilding, gaining insight into the challenges confronting today’s global community and finding collective solutions that promote and facilitate peace. The scholars will deliver a series of lectures on each university campus. The symposium will conclude with a panel discussion on Thursday, April 19, at the University of the Incarnate Word , which will be moderated by Congressman Charlie Gonzalez.
