Entries are judged on their creativity, user experience, and technical merit.

Launched in November 2008, the Kroc Institute’s website was designed as a hub for communicating the latest thinking in peace research and education and for fostering interaction among faculty, other scholars, students, alumni, and peacebuilders worldwide.  

Other website award-winners in Horizon’s college and university category included:  Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies, Indiana University’s Herron School of Art & Design, and the Harvard University Community Service Directory.
