USIP’s Global Campus provides accessible, engaging training opportunities to prepare individuals worldwide with the knowledge and skills to prevent violent conflict.
United States Institute of Peace
USIP works to prevent, mitigate, and resolve violent conflict around the world. USIP does this by engaging directly in conflict zones and by providing analysis, education, and resources to those working for peace. Created by the U.S. Congress in 1984 as an independent, nonpartisan organization, USIP’s more than 300 staff work at the Institute’s D.C. headquarters, and on the ground in the world’s most dangerous regions.
About the Academy
The Academy for International Conflict Management and Peacebuilding is the education and training leader of USIP. Established in 2009, the Academy provides practitioner-oriented education, training, and resources via its new online Global Campus, its facilities at USIP’s Washington headquarters, and mobile training in conflict zones abroad including Afghanistan, Sudan, and Iraq.
The Academy’s work rests on the following theory of change: When a critical mass of motivated leaders—ranging from the local community to the national level—becomes empowered with practical knowledge, skills, and resources to prevent, resolve, and transform conflict non-violently, violence in communities and nations will be reduced, and a culture of resolving differences peacefully will take root.
The Global Campus leverages the latest modern communication technologies to extend online education and training opportunities to individuals across the world. Now, from almost anywhere, professionals can increase their knowledge and skills to prevent violent and transform violent conflict through accessible, engaging online training opportunities. The Global Campus is proud to offer accessible trainings in flexible formats that bridge theory, research, and practice for stakeholders. Through partnership, we also help institutional partners increase the global reach and impact of their training.
