Providing hope and courage to those on the front lines of change

Amidst great uncertainty and polarization, our students continue learning the knowledge and skills to bring people together and further develop the field of restorative practices.

IIRP students and alumni are engaging alienated young people, tackling racism and promoting educational equity and inclusion. They are helping vulnerable immigrant children, supporting prisoners reentering their communities, and developing new strategies for building strong relationships across colleges and universities.

We want to expand this positive impact to areas of the world that need it most. Our online graduate programs make it possible. IIRP students participate from their home communities, whether they’re in Vietnam, Canada, Latin America, San Francisco or Detroit.

Starting in 2023, we will be expanding our full-tuition Impact Scholarship program, awarding five additional scholarships each year that are focused on international candidates. This is a five-year commitment with a goal of awarding a total of twenty-five by 2027. Our intention is to make a graduate level education in restorative practices more accessible to more people from a variety of backgrounds. This effort will not only benefit the recipients and the communities they serve, but also benefits our entire IIRP learning community by infusing new, diverse perspectives into the student body.

We need your help to continue this vital work.
