The embedded themes/strands within the Center’s work include scholarship, action research, leadership, community, social justice, service learning, global citizenship and reflection upon the connection between self and others, and between inner-peace and peace with others.
In fall 2008, Professor Sally Wu gave her Intercultural Psychology class an action research prompt on ways to encourage cross-cultural awareness, interaction and understanding among students in higher education. After brainstorming, reviewing related literature, consulting with Marymount professionals and writing numerous revisions, the class project turned into a proposal. It was presented to University President Dr. Michael Brophy. He invited the class to present the proposal at Marymount’s Governance Cabinet, which approved a semester-long pilot for spring 2009 that was funded out of the President’s Enterprise Fund. Starting in fall 2009, the P.E.A.C.E. Center moved out of its pilot-program stage and into the Academic Affairs Division, where it is housed in the Liberal Arts division.
