PEACE stands for Peer Empowerment, Advocacy/Activism, and Community Engagement. PEACE is a social justice community comprised of students who want to work to make a difference on campus, in their communities and in the world.
Engaging in critical social justice learning and practice requires moral courage, a commitment to learning, self-awareness, deep humility and compassion. As a member of the PEACE Program community, you are encouraged to lean into discomfort, knowing that learning often occurs in the place of unease and when you allow yourself to take risks and make mistakes. The strength and health of this community relies heavily on your commitment to engage with your peers in a respectful manner.
PEACE is a community of students who value equity, diversity, inclusion, intercultural learning, community engagement, and social justice activism. The program seeks to build strong leaders who understand the importance of critical social justice literacy and fluency.
PEACE is invested in ensuring that students have a positive and successful learning experience by creating opportunities for genuine community connections, self-exploration and discoveries of social justice interests, developing intercultural learning, and fostering social justice leadership skills.
The recruitment for PEACE will begin in the Fall of 2021 and will be led by three student leaders who will guide the meetings and prepare the dialogues. The fall will be for community building and engagement and the spring will be 14 weeks of learning and action.
You will have an opportunity to join PEACE in Fall of 2021.
