Violence, injustice, and intractable conflict are among the most pressing problems we face today. How can we address these problems creatively? The Peace and Conflict Studies Program seeks to give students, faculty, and staff the tools to understand issues underlying conflict and to creatively manage and transform conflict. Our program coordinates the Peace and Conflict Studies Concentration, a biennial student academic conference, speakers, internships and other funded opportunities, conflict-resolution workshops, and opportunities to interact with scholars and peacebuilders working in the field.
