CENTER FOR PEACE AND JUSTICE EDUCATION
In the Center for Peace and Justice Education, we equip you to become the person the world needs you to be.
Step into a Peace and Justice classroom, attend a lecture or film series, join a student organization, and consider how to advocate for a just and peaceful world. In whatever way you choose to get involved, the Center for Peace and Justice Education invites you to think critically, engage in difficult but transformative discussions, challenge institutions that render people vulnerable, and participate in efforts to realize dignity and the common good. Discover our community of devoted faculty and inspiring students. We believe that though there is injustice, even the smallest steps can carry us forward.
