For well over a quarter century, the Institute for Peace Studies has worked within a mission of "seeking alternatives to violence through education,” managing a vital and challenging program year, beginning with a January women's conference and including the Bross Peace Lectures, Jeannette Rankin Peace Award, Gronhovd Peace Essay Competition, Festival of Cultures, Cultural Diversity Outreach visits, and summer Peace Camp.
Since 1999, our 34 student staff members have come to us from 19 different countries around our world, adding depth and interest to an already dynamic organization. Although officially part of Rocky Mountain College, the institute "will operate under an auxiliary board of advisors entrusted with policy-making and fund-raising for the institute subject to the approval of the Rocky Mountain College Board of Trustees." Without the support of our community, we would not be in a position to offer these exciting opportunities. Thank you.
