Current Students

At the Carter School, our students are our greatest legacy. We educate individuals from around the world at all stages of their careers, whether they are just beginning or are seeking to grow peacebuilding networks and skills. Our students are part of a vibrant, dynamic, and diverse community, and we strive to offer them with the academic and professional resources needed to turn unique skills and callings into conflict resolution capability at the interpersonal, community, national, and global levels.

Build a welcoming community of inclusiveness and leadership for new students of all levels.
