Our Mission

Peace and Justice Studies (PJST) is designed to prepare students for domestic and international peacebuilding. This interdisciplinary program promotes analytical and experiential scholarship that addresses economic, sociological, demographic, ideological, cultural, psychological, and political contexts of violence. PJST cultivates critical understanding of theories and methods of conflict transformation and prevention, reconciliation, human security, sustainable development, and justice. The program encourages active participation by students and faculty in academic programs, relevant campus events, research, international study and scholarship, and scholarly publications. Dedicated faculty, committed to student success and engagement, prepare students for compassionate life styles, graduate studies, and professional lives in peace- and justice-related fields.
