The staff and board members of the Nonviolence Institute are proud and pleased to announce that our very own Mr. Cedric Huntley has accepted the position of Interim Executive Director.
Mr. Cedric is a lifelong member of Providence and has been a board member and intricate part of the Nonviolence Institute from the very beginning.
His practice of nonviolence, passion, commitment and dedication to his community make him a great leader and the right person for this challenging role.
We are all looking forward to being on this journey with him.
It is with a heavy heart that we share that Sister Joyce RSM, a founding member of the Institute's board, passed away on July 9th, 2020.

In 2016, the Nonviolence Institute (then the Institute for the Study and Practice of Nonviolence), assembled a group of staff, leaders, clients, and stakeholders to develop a strategic plan for growth and sustainability. The year-long planning process resulted in the formation of six strategic objectives. These objectives are a framework on which we build our services and projects.
Strategic Objectives for Management:
Center of Excellence in Nonviolence (build to be a primary center of thought, research, and practice in the field)
Relationship Management (work toward relationships that are strong with all constituent groups)
Evaluation Capacity (grow, implement, and maintain systems that evaluate performance and impact)
Resource Development (institute a management culture whereby resource development, especially but not solely financial, is the responsibility of all, not just one department or committee)
Continuous Professional Development (grow opportunities for all staff to continuously learn and develop skills as professionals in this field)
Communication Strategy (with intention, communicate the Institute’s story to each of our distinct constituent groups)
