Global Peace through Commerce

Welcome to the Center for Global Peace through Commerce

A stable economy with ample resources to meet the needs of its people is the wish and hope of every country on the globe. Countries with stable economic development are less likely to go to war. Based on this concept, the Center for Global Peace through Commerce focuses on social and business entrepreneurship as a force of change for global good.

Through a variety of programs and activities, the center engages with students and business professionals in three areas:

  • Education: Increasing understanding of the economic, social and political challenges to doing business around the world.
  • Social Entrepreneurship: Exploring ways social entrepreneurs can create change for global good.
  • Global Networks: Establishing international partnerships for the university community to address global challenges.

Mission Statement

The Center for Global Peace through Commerce strives to create globally-conscious leaders whose work can promote peace through relevant business solutions. It was established in 2008 with a generous grant from the Elizabeth Morse Charitable Trust.
