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 and as an adjunct lecturer, he is working with a number of universities in the US that are introducing peace engineering into their engineering curricula. In addition to his 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 that underpin their homegrown democratization efforts.
