As Nelson Mandela said, "Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world."

At the Center for Peacemaking, we believe that faculty drive social change in two important ways: through education and knowledge creation. Peace educators play a crucial role in shaping the hearts and minds of tomorrow's agents of change. Likewise, peace scholars generate knowledge that informs action to build a more peaceful, equitable and just future.

Are you looking to integrate peacemaking into your teaching and research? We are excited to work with faculty from all colleges and departments.
