Peace and Justice Institute

The Peace and Justice Institute at Valencia College promotes peace and justice for all. Our aim is to nurture an inclusive, caring and respectful environment on campus and within our community - one where conflict leads to growth and transformation rather than violence or aggression.

The Institute is guided by its mission: All People, All Voices, All Matter: Making a difference by intentionally engaging in practices and principles that explore, advocate, and honor the dignity of self, others, and the earth.

The stated goals of the Institute are to:

  1. Create and teach a Peace and Justice Studies curriculum
  2. Sponsor and collaborate on peace and justice co-curricular activities
  3. Foster a connection with Valencia’s A.S. programs in peace studies and conflict transformation
  4. Offer community outreach in peace and justice
  5. Engage in realizing Valencia’s core competencies

Read our Principles for How We Treat Each Other, our practice of respect and nonviolence.
