Mission Statement
* Through education and training, the Center for Nonviolence and Peace Studies at the University of Rhode Island seeks to institutionalize and internationalize nonviolence as a process that promotes the establishment of a global beloved community.

* Specifically, the Center engages in activities and projects that foster mutual understanding among people, in which nonviolent processes are used to reconcile conflicts and to build peaceful, sustainable, and inclusive communities that promote human rights, and economic and social justice for all.

* Through the study of nonviolence we learn how to apply approaches that will foster more harmonious relationships at every societal level, from interpersonal interactions to institutional and governmental policy.

* The Center accomplishes this mission by providing educational programs, program evaluation action research, community outreach, and leadership development at the University of Rhode Island, and by helping to facilitate such programs in Rhode Island, as well as nationally and internationally.

* Through these efforts we aim to collaborate with and strengthen relationships with other organizations, agencies, and governmental departments engaged in peacebuilding and nonviolence work locally, nationwide, and globally.
