Statement of Activism

The Peace and Conflict Studies program seeks to help students manage and resolve conflict, prevent violence, and promote social justice in interpersonal relations, institutions, and society. We engage and support students and the broader Elon community in their activism through mentoring and guidance that fosters critical thinking and teaches practical methods of conflict mediation and resolution. Our courses and events contribute to an understanding of civil resistance and the causes of violence, and we encourage efforts to reduce conflict, promote peace, and pursue justice on the local, regional, national, and international levels.
