Through education, research, and peacemaking activities, the institute offers programs that advance scholarship and practice in conflict resolution and human rights. The Institute for Peace & Justice at the University of San Diego draws upon Catholic social teaching that sees peace as inseparable from justice, and acts to prevent and resolve conflicts that threaten local, national, and international peace.

Their Distinguished Lecture Series offers the USD community at large, including our MBA Program participants, an opportunity to engage with today’s leaders who are working to forge new dialogues with parties in conflict and who seek to answer the question of how to create an enduring peace for tomorrow. Distinguished speakers throughout the year address the impact of human rights issues on conflict prevention and resolution.
