Peace Studies - The Gladdys Muir Peace Garden

The Gladdys Muir Peace Garden and Peace House

The Gladdys Muir Peace Garden, located on Wayne Street at the entrance to the University, was completed in 2001. It was built to acknowledge and celebrate the 50th anniversary of the University’s distinguished peace studies program and recognize it as the first of its kind in the world. The peace garden is a place for quiet reflection and the refurbished small cottage is a “meeting house.” 

Each year at Homecoming, a plaque is dedicated in honor of a notable peacemaker and placed on the Peace Wall at the entrance of the garden.
