Center for Judaic, Holocaust, and Peace Studies

Remember Us So We May Remember Them

The Center’s Mission seeks to strengthen tolerance, understanding, and remembrance by increasing knowledge of Judaism and Jewish history. In addition, understanding the culture, teaching  of the history and significance of the Holocaust. In by doing so using these experiences to explore peaceful avenues for human improvement and to promote the prevention of future genocides.


One way the Center endeavors to achieve its goals is through the academic minor in Judaic, Holocaust, and Peace Studies. Not simply a program in Jewish Studies, this unique approach allows students to choose three areas in which to focus their intellectual interests. A Faculty Advisory Board constantly evaluates the course offerings to ensure the established curriculum will impart a critical, contemporary view of the three areas.
