Each year we pause to recognize that peace is not simply the absence of war, but a constantly changing and fragile ideology that can be threatened if people are not given the opportunity to express themselves and connect with one another. Despite worldwide volatility and political pressures, we must in our increasingly diverse and technologically advanced society, constantly seek understanding and global perspective.

During the College's Peace Week, through the attendance of a variety of diverse celebrations and presentations, students are motivated to engage in reflection, solve complex interrelationship issues and gain an understanding of the self, along with learning acceptance of others.
