Peace and Justice Studies

Justice Scales

The Peace and Justice program has served the University mission for nearly three decades by focusing students from all backgrounds on ideals of social justice and training students in methods of conflict prevention and peacemaking. The program was first inspired by liberation theology, the civil rights movement of the 1950s and 1960s, and philosohies of nonviolence and citizen activism; its goals today are grounded in the global human rights movement and shaped by the UN's Millennium Development Goals for poverty relief.
