Summer Institute: Teaching Peace in the 21st Century

Save the date for the upcoming Summer Institute on ‘Teaching Peace in the 21st Century’ at the University of Notre Dame. This event will take place on June 15-19, 2015 and it is a week-long program jointly sponsored by the Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies at the University of Notre Dame and USIP.

Over the past six years, a large number of Catholic colleges and universities have attended. This Institute joins together denominational and public colleges and state universities so that faculty and staff can learn why and how to build quality programs in peace and justice.  Over the past few years the Institute has even welcomed colleagues from African and Latin American universities. This year, the Catholic University of Peru and Uganda Martyrs University are just two examples of the universities which plan to attend.
