The University for Peace’s more than 1600 alumni live and work in every region of the world. The vast majority of alumni work in peace-building capacities in their home countries and internationally, often on the front line of conflict situations. Currently, the greatest percentage of our Alumni work for non-governmental organisations but many of our graduates go on to work within the United Nations system and in various other international humanitarian capacities. Some now teach at the University level and work for academic institutions, while others have joined their national governments in diverse and influential fields such as international affairs, electoral tribunals, and environmental policy. Another significant portion of our alumni community is pursuing doctoral degrees.
