Let’s change the world

The Center for Nonviolence and Peace Studies is an internationally-recognized academic gathering place where students, scholars, educators–the change makers–come together to promote mutual understanding, reconcile conflicts, and build peaceful, sustainable, and inclusive communities.

Here students gain expertise in human rights and peace studies through interdisciplinary academic coursework, nonviolence training, and hands-on experience. Faculty and scholars form unique interdisciplinary partnerships and access research on social justice and nonviolence–including one of the largest human rights data sets in the world.
