Service & Activism Opportunities at DePaul

​​The Peace, Justice and Conflict Studies Program values a hands-on approach to peacebuilding and social change, and promotes a variety of service opportunities to students throughout the year.  The program partners with other organizations in the university, such as the Steans Center and University Mission and Ministry, and other community partners to offer students a variety of ways to get involved.  Calls to action and service are often shared in the weekly newsletter.​​​
