Peace and Justice Studies (PJS)

The primary goal of the PJS program is the development of students' knowledge and competencies in fields that contribute towards peace and social transformation.

Our world faces a set of interrelated problems, including militarism and war, political violence and repression, ecological destruction, poverty, hunger, racism, and institutionalized sexism. Throughout the world, international, inter-governmental, and local nongovernmental organizations have formed to confront such problems and to work for nonviolent social change.

PJS was founded to provide students an academic means to integrate an understanding of the many crises facing the world and to encourage involvement in nonviolent attempts to build a world of peace and justice. Education, particularly higher education, offers a valuable setting for creating peace and justice through study and active involvement in social change processes. PJS is dedicated to working to provide a university-wide forum for the discussion of these issues. PJS sponsors or co-sponsors numerous educational events and community activities to enrich and expand classroom work.
