Jerry McCann

Peace Engineer & Board Treasurer



Jerry has spent the last thirty years honing his skills as a change agent, from structural engineering in the United States to international peacebuilding around the world. Jerry now uses these skills to help define the concept of peace engineering. Both in support of curriculum development, as an adjunct lecturer, and with peace engineering fellows, he is working with a number of universities in the US that are introducing peace engineering into their engineering curricula and field work. In addition to his peace engineering work with Build Up, Jerry continues to support electoral work in the Somali region where he has worked closely with Somali institutions in the delivery of electoral processes which underpin their homegrown democratization efforts.
