Since 1891, George Fox University has been educating Christian leaders for effective service in improving the spiritual and material conditions of human life. The Center for Peace and Justice is one of the significant ways George Fox University carries out its Christ-centered, Quaker mission.
Created in December 1984 as the Center for Peace Learning, the Center for Peace and Justice helps people understand and manage the many forms of conflict. The center's goal is to nurture agents of hope, people who embody in their citizenship, careers, and daily lives God's promised gifts of peace and reconciliation.
The Center for Peace and Justice extends the Quaker heritage and the Christian higher educational work of George Fox University by collecting information, teaching, and providing resources and experiences in peacemaking and conflict management at all levels of human interaction, from interpersonal to international.
