WI Institute for Peace and Conflict Studies

Welcome to the Wisconsin Institute for Peace and Conflict Studies

The Wisconsin Institute 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. At a time when virtually all institutions are seeking 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.
Our activities include:
  • Student-Faculty Conference--April 5, 2019, at St. Norbert College
  • Non-Violence Trainings
  • Speakers Program
  • Annual Distinguished Faculty and Student Awards
  • Cooperative Research, Faculty Development, and Curriculum Consulting
We very much appreciate the support and involvement of our member institutions listed to the left and welcome all Wisconsin colleges and universities to join us. Please contact me for more information and see the Membership link above.
Thank you to the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point for hosting our office and Web site.
