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 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. In addition to hosting workshops and lectures, the institute cosponsors a number of speakers, symposia, and other special events with diverse campus groups. 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. The Reppy Institute does not offer academic credit or an undergraduate major or concentration.
