Andrew Mixson has earned a BA in Classics and Minors in History and Art History from John Cabot University in Rome. He served indirectly as an interfaith leader, promoting dialogue and shared cultural understanding within the social university life. He became passionate about the potential good such work would have for promoting peace. This led him to undertake his graduate degree in the Peace Studies Program, thus combining his
previous studies of Classics with an analysis of the interplay between politics and religion in promoting conflict management and diplomatic efforts.
