Iona celebrate Week of the Peacemaker. 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. This year’s theme was Swords in Plowshares: Seeking Peace in a Violent World.
