Why Peace and Global Studies?
Le Moyne College’s commitment to issues of global studies runs deep. Not only is this in keeping with the Jesuit tradition of intellectual rigor in a world context noted by Fr. General Hans-Kolvenbach, but is a reflection of the diverse community of scholar-teachers that make-up the Le Moyne faculty. The development of the center in tandem with the major will work to create and sustain a viable and exciting academic program that will increasingly play a part in the collegiate experience of all of our students. Finally, the program and the major will help prepare young people to be productive and ethical global citizens in an ever-smaller world.

“I have devoted a lot of my time and energy towards traveling through Asia and learning about its people and cultures. I attribute my passion for travel to the diversity of classes that I had to choose from at Le Moyne. By studying the issues that plague the world at an academic level, I was inspired to travel and gain first-hand experience of those same issues. My goal is to apply this combined knowledge towards helping to serve the poor and disenfranchised in Asia.”
