Professor Andy Blom (PHL-REL) and CMU President George Ross raised the Peace Flag on May 24, 2015, to support the historic women’s peace walk across the demilitarized zone (DMZ) that separates North and South Korea. For more about Women Cross DMZ, click here.

Prior to World War I (1914-1918), “Peace Day” - May 18 - was celebrated throughout the U.S. as a means of educating citizens about the international processes that were developed to replace armed conflict with a more humane method of dispute settlement.


This May 18, we highlight the connections between this international story and the story of CMU and other universities in Michigan.


Join us learning about this story, and then raising an historic Peace Flag (designed in 1897) to honor the legacy and continue the work of former CMU President E.C. Warriner, who saw public schools and universities as tasked with a mission of promoting a more peaceful and just world through education and the telling of history in way that recognizes moments of cooperation, triumph and progress.
