National Peacebuilding Peacelearning Certificate Program


A Learning Program for those seeking to Create Positive Change in themselves, their Communities, and the World…
The United States is troubled by the ongoing impacts of multiple wars, faltering housing and financial markets, an ever expanding income gap, soaring energy prices, a homicide rate ten times that of other leading industrial nations, and a prison population that includes 1 in every 100 citizens.  In the face of these struggles, many people are seeking solutions that are just and sustainable, and are seeking transformative pathways that address root causes rather than merely symptoms.  These struggles are being pursued by citizens just like you, people from all walks of life who are seeking opportunities to establish safe, healthy and sustainable communities in which people are able to live with dignity, free from violence, with assurances of the basic requirements of their security.

The National Peacebuilding Peacelearning Certificate Program (NCP) provides opportunities for gaining breadth & depth in peacebuilding and peace education or for just testing the waters.  Students can take one course, sample a few, or pursue a personalized learning journey toward earning a certificate in Peacebuilding and Peacelearning that includes practical experiences for putting learning into action.  Certificate Program courses are available online or as short, in-person intensives and are conducted in partnership with leading educators, universities, and peacebuilding organizations around the country.
