In all, data was collected from over 1500 individuals, making this one of the largest, most comprehensive human trafficking case studies in the United States. There is more to be done...and we want students to participate. How do students get involved? They express interest and figure out how much time they can dedicate to this project.

“I recently met a first-year student who told me that he came to USD because of the Social Innovation Challenge. It meant a lot to me to hear that, to see that there are students who are drawn to our university because we offer this opportunity for them to create and be the change they want to see in the world. Working with students in the Social Innovation Challenge has been an incredible privilege. It can be a risky thing for a student to put their idea out there, but these students take that risk, and they are relentless and curious and dedicated to creating change. I think about students like Fred Benneh, who won funding in the Social Innovation Challenge and went back to his home village in Ghana this summer and used the funding to complete the construction and train the teachers for a new school. The school is offering a completely innovative learning model. It is going to be a game changer for these kids, and I am sure that the students who grow up going to Fred's school are going to be future leaders in their communities, in their nation and around the globe.”

What made you decide to get a master’s degree in peace and justice? Other students may have come to the program to seek ways to become peacemakers around the world, but back in 2003, the struggle to keep young people alive was occurring just a few miles away from USD’s campus. Others had dreams of sitting around negotiating tables and hammering out peace deals. I was coming from the perspective of trying to figure out what to do when two gang members were on either side of me and my words might be the only thing preventing a street brawl from breaking out, and from me being that brawl’s first casualty.

I have always been drawn to the idea of service and of trying to make my life about something bigger than myself. I was in the Navy for seven years and while I am proud of my military service and grateful for the many opportunities it gave me, I came to the realization that I didn’t want the central paradigm of my professional life to be violence.

The Joan B. Kroc School of Peace Studies is housed in a beautiful, 90,000-square-foot Spanish Renaissance-style facility. It is an inspiring setting for work, study, dialogue and contemplation, and also serves as one of Southern California’s premier conference and special event venues. A separate residence offers temporary housing to visiting dignitaries and scholars. In addition to the school’s offices, classrooms and research facilities, the building also includes a 288-seat auditorium, 10 conference rooms, an executive boardroom and dedicated spaces for meetings and negotiations, conferences and lectures to support the school’s programs. The Garden of the Sea, overlooking Mission Bay and the Pacific Ocean, is a spectacular outdoor setting for receptions and events.
