Our Mission: The Center for Peace & Conflict Studies at ACC is dedicated to advancing the understanding of peace, justice, and conflict within both the college and Austin communities. The Center’s programming offers intra- and interpersonal skill building and creates opportunities to have conversations across conflict lines that impact our community, empowering individuals to incorporate a peace and conflict studies lens in their personal, academic, and professional lives.


Our Vision: The Center for Peace & Conflict Studies will empower the College and local community to prevent, deescalate, and transform conflicts and to build more empathetic and peaceful intrapersonal, interpersonal, and intergroup relationships using a peace and conflict studies lens.
