Peace and Justice Studies

Exploring the Social Conscience of Franciscan Faith

Interested in problems facing the world and attempts to work for social change? If so, then the Peace and Justice Studies program may be for you.

The program integrates a dynamic student culture outside the classroom with rigorous scholarship in the classroom. The program combines academic studies, theological reflection and community engagement to prepare students for civic leadership.

Students have the opportunity to promote peace and justice on campus and interact with leaders of the Indianapolis peace and justice community. The program prepares students to reflect upon the living relevance of Franciscan values.

Social Justice Events

Students in the Peace and Justice Studies program both organize and participate in social justice events. For example, Peace and Justice Studies students have organized Global Peace and Justice Day, the Hunger Banquet, the Homeless Shanty Town, and the annual trip to the School of the Americas vigil. They have also participated in peace missions to the Middle East, peace conferences at the Indianapolis War Memorial, and leadership retreats at the Sisters of St. Francis Monastery in Oldenburg, Indiana.
