We have big news to share: we will be holding a hybrid conference this year!

2022 Notre Dame Student Peace Conference
(Re)Imagining Justice

Friday, April 8 – Saturday, April 9, 2022

Due to the continued uncertainty around COVID-19, on site attendance and presentation this year is limited to local students from our tri-campus community (University of Notre Dame, Saint Mary’s College, Holy Cross College). These sessions will also be streamed virtually.

The remainder of the sessions, including any presentations by students from schools around the country and the world, will take place virtually online. We will also provide networking space online so that those not present in person can connect and share.

While not ideal, we believe this hybrid event will allow more people from more locations to engage in meaningful learning and dialogue while also keeping everyone safe.

Interested in presenting at this year’s conference?

The call for submissions is now open! Get started on your submission by reviewing our proposal guidelines and session definitions.

The conference committee invites undergraduate and graduate students from all different fields of study to submit interdisciplinary proposals that demonstrate how their own work and scholarship advances the field of peace studies and its understanding of justice.

The Notre Dame Student Peace Conference is an annual event organized by students for students and sponsored by the Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies. The conference is free and open to students from any college or university who want to dialogue on important issues related to peacebuilding, social justice, and conflict transformation.
