About the Kroc School

Dedicated to Peace and Justice


The University of San Diego's Joan B. Kroc School of Peace Studies is dedicated to building and sustaining peace and justice through innovative learning, interdisciplinary analysis, advanced practice, and engaged public policy.

Through its Institute for Peace and Justice the faculty, staff and students of the School are helping populations achieve peace and justice in places around the world. Working with its Trans-Border Institute, they are addressing urgent transnational issues affecting the people of Mexico and the United States, as well as peace and justice questions that transcend other key borders.

At the Kroc School, students from around the world receive an interdisciplinary academic and practice-oriented education. They go on to serve in a range of international, national and local institutions, whether in civil society, government or the private sector.

A Kroc School education values scholarship and practical experience equally. It emphasizes the highest standards of competence, compassion, and understanding, recognizing that true expertise is rooted in the experience of people affected by conflict and injustice.
