Global Peace Week

Each September, the Peace and Justice Institute celebrates International Day of Peace with Global Peace Week festivities and events including peace education, music, arts and crafts, 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 International Peace Day is to have at least one non-violent, cease-fire day throughout the world. Visit Peace One Day for background on how International Peace Day came into being and for more information on what you can do to help accomplish a global change.

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