The Purpose of the National Peace Academy is to support, advance, and nurture cultures of peace through peacelearning toward the development of the full spectrum of the peacebuilder in everyone - inner and outer, personal and professional; and the development of peace systems - local to global. To achieve that Purpose, our Mission is to provide, catalyze, and make accessible holistic and integrative learning and research for peace, and to elevate in the public consciousness the meaning and value of peacebuilding and everyone’s role in it.
The National Peace Academy is motivated by a vision of cultures in the United States and around the world founded upon the concept of peace articulated in the Earth Charter, which is: "the wholeness created by right relationships with oneself, other persons, other cultures, other life, Earth, and the larger whole of which all are a part."
In carrying out our Mission, the National Peace Academy conducts programs, activities, and operations that are:
- Principle-based. In everything it does, the National Peace Academy strives to embody and reflect the principles and processes of peace, both internally and externally.
- Comprehensive. National Peace Academy education programs are transdisciplinary in scope and integrate, inform, and are informed by peacelearning, peace education, peace research, peace practice, and peace policy.
- Collaborative. The National Peace Academy works through and with existing and emerging institutions and programs in government, business, and civil society.
- U.S.-focused. The National Peace Academy orients its programs nationally while networking globally.
