Who We Are

The Wisconsin Institute for Peace and Conflict Studies

The Wisconsin Institute for Peace and Conflict Studies is a unique and vital consortium of private and public colleges and universities dedicated to enriching academic and public discourse on issues of peace and conflict. The Institute is non-partisan and encourages debate and discussion of multiple perspectives, not only of foreign policy issues and global areas of conflict, but also of intercultural communication, gender relations, and environmental sustainability. As institutions seek to internationalize and/or globalize their curricula and co-curricular programs, the Wisconsin Institute for Peace and Conflict Studies (WIPCS) is a statewide resource available to help.

We very much appreciate the support and involvement of our member institutions and welcome all Wisconsin colleges and universities to join us. Please contact me for more information and see the Membership link under the About tab above. Thank you to the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point for hosting our office.
