Pacem In Terris Program

Pacem In Terris Program

Established in 1993, the Pacem In Terris Institute brings students from war-torn and developing nations to study at La Roche University. Throughout the years, La Roche has welcomed 450 Pacem In Terris students who have traveled from various regions –including Rwanda, Burundi, Uganda, Sierra Leone, Bosnia, Palestine, Jordan, the Congo and Haiti. Many now lead productive, educated lives and have become leaders in their respective countries, fields and professions.

The work of this program is critically important and donations are needed to allow this program to continue.
