Global Peace Week

Each September, the Peace and Justice Institute celebrates the International Day of Peace with Global Peace Week festivities and events including peace education, music, guest speakers, and free film screenings in partnership with the Global Peace Film Festival. 

The United Nations sanctioned International Peace Day is September 21st. The mission of “Peace Day” is to have at least one non-violent, cease-fire day throughout the world.

Faculty, staff and students are invited to participate in the creation, planning and implementation of Global Peace Week.
