The Office of Peace and Justice awards grants for the development of undergraduate courses that will qualify for the Peace and Justice Studies Minor, which is expected to launch in AY 2017-18. The call for applications is issued in the spring semester and the deadline is April 10, 2017.
The minor in Peace and Justice Studies will be interdisciplinary in nature, thus applications are welcome from all academic disciplines across the University. Applicants may apply to design a new course or redesign an existing course.

Dr. John Kiess, Assistant Professor of Theology/Director, Office of Peace and Justice
