Dr. Neil Funk-Unrau holds a Master of Arts degree in Peace Studies from Associated Mennonite Biblical Seminaries and a doctorate in Social Science from Syracuse University. The topic of his dissertation was interchurch advocacy and intervention in the Lubicon Cree land rights conflict in northern Alberta. Before beginning doctoral studies, he worked as an Aboriginal rights researcher and educator for the Conference of Mennonites in Canada. Dr. Funk-Unrau has extensive experience in community and victim-offender mediation, including several years as a volunteer mediator and mediation trainer for Mediation Services in Winnipeg, and several years as a volunteer mediator and board member for Edmonton Victim-Offender Mediation Services. He has taught with Menno Simons College since 2000, initially at Canadian Mennonite University and then moving to the University of Winnipeg in 2002.
