In 1997, the Center for Peace Education (CPE) was established. This enabled the more systematic training of Miriam faculty and students, among other things. The CPE launched the Peer Mediation Program and produced materials such as a Peer Mediation Sourcebook and a Peace Education Teacher-Training Manual.
The Center’s mission is to help advance a culture of peace through education. A culture of peace is a set of values, modes of behavior and ways of life that reflects respect for life and for human dignity, rejects violence in all its forms, prevents violent conflicts by tackling their root causes, and recognizes the importance of cooperation, tolerance and dialogue.
