What is the Global Peace & Justice Studies
Community
at Montgomery College?

In our preliminary conversations, those of us who have already been meeting have identified three directions in which Global Peace and Justice studies at MC might move:

  • a formal peace studies program with a full curriculum of designated courses aimed at an academic degree
  • a less formal program that would include courses from a variety of disciplines aimed at an official certificate
  • and “infusion,” which involves focusing courses that already exist on a peace and/or justice theme.

These are not incompatible approaches; in fact, the last may move into the second, which could eventually result in the first.

At Montgomery College, we pride ourselves on our diversity and on the opportunities we provide for personal and academic growth. With the creation of this initiative, the foundation of a Global Peace and Justice Studies program here at MC, we wish to establish a forum for bringing to life the maxim “be the change you wish to see in the world.” We wish to explore how to bring the ideals, and the practice, of peace and justice to the classroom, to the campus, to the community, and to the world.   

We who have already started the conversation hope that you will join, and that together our voices and our actions will create new learning opportunities that focus on peace and justice among the “endless possibilities” at Montgomery College.

 “Be the change you wish to see in the world.”—Mahatma Gandhi
