Peace Center house on McKinley

 The Peace Center house on McKinley

Since 1988, the Center for Peace and Conflict Studies has had a presence on the Ball State campus. It was evident during that time that the student body and campus community needed a place to be educated on international issues while raising awareness on diversity.

Over the years, we’ve added a minor and offer services on meditation and mediation. We also have a created a great way to engage the community through the Muncie Interfaith Fellowship. The fellowship fosters interfaith dialogue between members.
