Psychology for Equity, Awareness, and Community Enhancement
Purpose and Mission
The purpose(s) of this organization shall be to provide a supportive environment for students, faculty, and staff from all walks of life to come together to work toward social justice and applying psychology in an evolving and diverse world. Through exposure to empirical literature and subsequent discussions, those involved in PEACE will learn how psychology can be applied to real world problems and social change. More than speaking about change, those involved in PEACE will get out and do something to impact the campus, local community, and broader environment.
Membership in this organization shall be open to any ETSU student, faculty or staff members that are interested in becoming a member PEACE. All student members must be in good standing with ETSU and are required to keep a minimum GPA of 2.0.
In 2018, PEACE organized a student-led seminar titled "Revisiting Racism: Two Years
After the Gorilla Incident" to help facilitate a conversation about race and racial
tensions in our region and nation. The seminar was later recognized as the "Outstanding
Multicultural Program" at the 2019 Summit Celebration at East Tennessee State University.
