Peace and Justice Center

Empowering students to change the world

The Russell J. Compton Center for Peace and Justice is committed to raising consciousness among members of our community concerning issues of social justice, providing opportunities for reflection, and empowering persons to work for social change.

The Compton Center is a student-centered organization designed to empower students, promote and facilitate student initiatives, and foster social responsibility as part of DePauw’s academic mission.  We accomplish these goals by:

  • Developing programs (speakers, films, discussions, etc.) that address a broad spectrum of peace and justice issues;
  • Making connections between social privilege and social responsibility; and
  • Providing resources to students, staff, and faculty.

The Compton Center for Peace & Justice is located at 500 E. Seminary St.
