Selected college peace studies programs are described, and perspectives on such efforts in higher education are considered in an article by Robert C. Williams, "Sounds of Silence: The Academy and the Nuclear Question." Following the essay, peace studies activities of six colleges are described. At Syracuse University, the Program in Nonviolent Conflict and Change includes peace studies instruction and research projects, and training in nonviolent methods. The Mennonite Goshen College's peace studies program assists other departments to include peace content in their materials. At Ohio State University, issues of public policy and national security are addressed in five programs of teaching, research, and public service. The Peace and Conflict Studies program at Juniata College seeks to promote an understanding of war within each discipline. At the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, study and research is undertaken on the military, political, economic, and social implications of the arms race and arms control efforts. Finally, at Earlham College, the Peace and Global Studies Program stems from its Quaker heritage and tradition of teaching about international concerns and social activism. Additional programs are briefly described, along with resource materials. (SW)
