Society & Culture

促进和平与正义 & 理解

We're committed to social consciousness and public service, a commitment that carries over into our research efforts. Our faculty and students perform research funded by the Carnegie Corporation to explore nonviolent action in violent settings, with particular focus on non-state actors and non-violent strategies as drivers of security.

We also believe that when the most vulnerable members of a population are cared for and protected, 整个社会从中受益. Through our partnership with Denver Public Schools for the Spotlight on Success program, we work to find methods to end the school-to-prison pipeline. Globally or locally, we strive to give our students the opportunity to better their world.
