Apply Now to Attend the 11th Annual Summer Institute


The 11th Annual Summer Institute for Faculty at the Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies will be held June 10-14, 2019, at the University of Notre Dame. The event centers on the theme, "Teaching Peace in the 21st Century." 


Each year, this intensive program brings together teams of academics (a minimum of three attendees from each college or university) who want to launch a peace studies program; strengthen or develop a new dimension of a peace studies program; or move an established peace studies program to the next level of design and rigor.


George A. Lopez, Rev. Theodore M. Hesburgh, C.S.C., Professor Emeritus of Peace Studies at the Kroc Institute and former Vice-President at the United States Institute of Peace, an internationally recognized authority on peace studies program development, leads the program. The Summer Institute is also staffed by a dozen faculty and staff experts from the Kroc Institute.


Since its inaugural event in 2009, the SI has hosted over 410 attendees from 115 different institutions across five continents. In addition, Kroc faculty have conducted modified programs like the SI in Colombia and Uganda.
