In this exhibit, artist Catherine Dallaire re-examines the original Indigenous values in animal and plant life that are often vilified by contemporary Western settler culture. Building understanding between Indigenous and non-Indigenous worldviews is an important step towards peace and conciliation in the Canadian context. Creating space for Indigenous wisdom to guide culture and policy is an integral part of building peace and justice.

Conrad Grebel University College honours graduates who have lived and studied at Grebel while completing their University of Waterloo degree programs. This special Convocation takes place several weeks prior to the University of Waterloo Convocations where the official degrees are conferred. Faculty, staff, students, families, and friends celebrate this significant accomplishment together.

We welcome friends and families to this celebration on Sunday, April 14, 2019 at 2:00 pm in the Humanities Theatre, Hagey Hall, University of Waterloo.

“Pop-up” Peace Museum – Presented by the students of PACS 203/HIST 232 (A History of Peace Movements), the Pop-up Peace Museum features 14 exhibits highlighting a wide range of peace and justice movements from the 20th and 21st centuries. Come and visit on Monday, March 25 from 1:00pm to 5:00pm in Room #2202 at Conrad Grebel University College (directly across from Grebel’s front reception desk).

International criminal prosecution is seen by some as an essential tool to end impunity and reduce the extraordinary impact that war crimes and crimes against humanity have on civilians who are trapped in war.  Others criticize international prosecution as simply another form of Westerners attempting to impose their view of justice on a skeptical world while ignoring and silencing the voices of the victims and the communities from which they come. 

This event is part of the Intercollegiate Peace Fellowship Conference, a three day conference that explores the meaning, history, and practice of restorative justice.

This is a public event that is free to attend and open to all. This event is available with American Sign Language (ASL) interpretation.

Fundraising Dinner - Celebrating 40 years of PACS

In 1977, an academic concentration in Peace and Conflict Studies was formally launched at University of Waterloo.  It was the first undergraduate peace studies program at a Canadian university. That same year, the student-run Peace Society was created at Conrad Grebel University College.

Join us as we celebrate 40 years of peace education.

Keynote speaker: Hon. Bob Rae
