The Peacemaker team consists of four undergraduate students selected to live in the freshman residence halls. These students work closely with both Campus Ministry and Residence Life staff.

Grounded in the mission of the Brothers of Christian Instruction, the Peacemakers pledge themselves to the highest level of personal integrity, ongoing formation and the spiritual development of the university community. They are committed to living a lifestyle of Christian witness, engaging students from every walk of life, building community and offering themselves as mentors to the freshman class.

The Peacemakers regularly host bonfires, socials and small group prayer gatherings in the dorms. Check out our calendar for more details.
