The Iona College Office of Mission and Ministry is dedicated to building a community of faith and compassion.
As a college in the Catholic and Christian Brother traditions, Iona prizes the values of peace and social justice, so integral to this heritage. For over thirty years Iona College has chosen the time period following Veterans Day to dedicate academic and co-curricular attention to peacemaking. This annual observance honors the self-less dedication of veterans for the cause of peace, freedom, and justice. Each year the college chooses a theme for its Week of the Peacemaker and through lectures and activities coveys this theme in diverse and dynamic ways. Past themes have included: Global Hunger, Human Rights, Human Trafficking, and the Environment.
