"No cause is left but the most ancient of all, the one, in fact, that from the beginning of our history has determined the very existence of politics, the cause of freedom versus tyranny."

~Hannah Arendt


Professor Vince Kavaloski takes his Philosophy of Peace students (10-12 students) to either Washington, D.C. for a World Parliament simulation or to New York City to the United Nations. Students meet with scholars and activists involved in global peace-making.

In addition, three of our students won the World Federalist "Distinguished Student Peacemaker" award ($1,000). One of them was sent to London (in 2002) to the International World Federalist Conference.

In Fall 2010, Kavaloski's "Philosophy of Martin Luther King, Jr." seminar traveled to Memphis to tour the National Civil Rights Museum and participate in a conference on "Gandhian Nonviolence."
