About Us

The Judith Reppy Institute for Peace and Conflict Studies is an interdisciplinary program devoted to research and teaching on the problems of war and peace, arms control and disarmament, and more generally, instances of collective violence.

The Reppy Institute is affiliated with Cornell University's Mario Einaudi Center for International Studies. Students and faculty involved in the Institute come from a wide variety of Cornell units.

The Institute supports a number of activities during the year focused on our central missions of supporting student and faculty teaching and research, cross-campus interactions, and off-campus outreach. Besides hosting workshops and lectures, the Institute co-sponsors a number of speakers, symposia, and other special events with other campus groups. We especially encourage anyone on campus or in the community to attend our weekly seminar at noon on Thursdays in Uris Hall. Click on the events tab to view upcoming topics and details.

The Judith Reppy Institute does not offer academic credit or an undergraduate major or concentration. Courses sponsored by the Institute are listed within academic departments, which assign credit for them. There is a graduate minor field in Peace Studies and Peace Science; information is available on the Academics tab.
