Kroc School Response to Coronavirus

Innovating through COVID-19

COVID-19 has presented many challenges and opportunities for peacebuilders and social innovators around the world, including for students and employees of the Kroc School. As professionals in changemaking fields, we recognize and model adaptability during unprecedented challenges.

The resources on this page demonstrate just a handful of the ways we are staying agile, creative, and helpful in an effort to support current and prospective students, and to contribute positively to the broader peacebuilding community. We will continue to populate this page with resources as they become available.

For Prospective Students

During this time of uncertainty, we are adapting to meet the evolving needs of our students in a remote environment. Our entire USD community is working together to offer robust student services. We are also preparing to welcome new students in the 2020-2021 academic year in a more flexible manner.

For the Community

The Kroc School and its institutes are providing learning resources and hosting virtual events that enable social innovators and peacebuilders – including government agencies such as USAID and the UK’s department of International Development – to address increasing violence and conflict trends during this crisis.
