Become a Kroc IPJ Peace Partner

President Harris talking to two people.

The Kroc IPJ Peace Partners Program is necessary at USD. We can build our community through working together.

As a student at the University of San Diego, you’re committed to being a changemaker.

You see challenges in our global and local communities and want to take action to address them. At the same time, you’re looking for learning opportunities to deepen your knowledge and skills and chances to build your professional networks. While you do this work, you want to be part of a community of like-minded individuals who are also committed to making our world a more peaceful place.

For all these reasons, we would like to invite you to join the Kroc IPJ Peace Partners Program. As a Kroc IPJ Peace Partner, you’ll get to know who we are at the Kroc IPJ and build relationships with our experienced staff. You’ll learn how we’re ending cycles of violence by working with peacemakers around the world and right here in San Diego. Throughout the year, you’ll get exclusive access to the peacebuilders and changemakers the Kroc IPJ brings to campus, all while creating and deepening your connections to fellow USD students who share your passion for creating positive change.

As a Kroc IPJ Peace Partner you will:

  • Work with a Kroc IPJ staff member, as well as other Kroc IPJ Peace Partners, to create opportunities to leverage the knowledge and connections of the Kroc IPJ to support other dimensions of your work and studies on-campus.
  • Attend one meeting each semester to connect, share, and plan.
  • Stay informed about what the Kroc IPJ is doing – events we’re hosting, opportunities we have for students, and more. This way you can make sure your personal and professional networks capitalize on these opportunities.
  • Get invitations to attend private events featuring local, national, and international leaders in peacebuilding and social change.
  • Benefit from the experience, resources, and networks of the Kroc IPJ to advance your efforts at changemaking, whether on campus, in our San Diego community, or around the world.

We hope you’ll choose to join us as a Kroc IPJ Peace Partner! To apply, send an email explaining why you want to become a peace partner and your resume/CV to the Kroc IPJ (
