"Exploring the power of nonviolence."
The Marquette University Center for Peacemaking strives to empower the university and wider community to explore together the necessary skills to become informed, spiritually centered, nonviolent peacemakers. Rooted in the Ignatian charism, the center works with a spirit of confidence and joy to achieve an awakening to the complementary relationship of scholarship, spirituality, nonviolent living, and the active struggle for peace and justice.
We envision a future of peace for the earth and for humanity, when the world has rejected war and violence and has embraced nonviolent action as the way to overcome oppression, resolve conflict, protect the earth and bring the human family together.
