Strategic Plan, 2018-2023

The Kroc Institute is one of the world’s premier peace institutes and a center of knowledge and expertise on the causes of violent conflict and the paths to peace in the twenty-first century. Now, as part of the Keough School of Global Affairs, the Kroc Institute continues to grow and extend its work and reach, focusing on the intrinsic relationships among cutting-edge peace research; superb undergraduate and graduate instruction based on peace studies pedagogy; and effective public service to local communities, governments, transnational and international organizations, and educational and religious institutions.

Beginning with the 2018-19 academic year, the Kroc Institute's work will be guided by a new strategic plan. This new five-year strategic plan is based on the conviction that, in order to increase its excellence and impact, the Kroc Institute must respond to the pressing domestic and global challenges to peace by extending the scale and scope of the four fields of Kroc’s work: research, education, practice, and outreach. 

Our three goals: 

1. Enhance cutting-edge research and continue to develop global leadership role in interdisciplinary peace research

2. Ensure that Kroc Institute research has a significant impact on peace policy and practice

3. Develop Kroc’s educational programs to consolidate the Institute’s reputation as a global leader in peace education
