Bruin Notes

Peace Center carries on under new name

The name has changed, but the mission of the Center for Peace and Justice remains the same: to inform George Fox students of peace and justice issues and provide opportunities for practical application.

The center, created in December of 1984 as the Center for Peace Learning, also changed leadership. Lon Fendall, who directed the center from 1985 to 1989, returned to oversee both the Center for Peace and Justice and its newly created sister program, the Center for Global Studies.

Among the Center for Peace and Justice’s most visible presentations is the John Woolman Peacemaking Forum each fall. The center also offers lectures, films, international work/study trips, and field experience opportunities.

Meanwhile, the Center for Global Studies also offers educational programs and allows students to spend a semester studying abroad.
