The Center for Leadership & Social Change


To rectify the problems we face today, we need to begin to accept and know about our cultures, religions, and different persons. 

Nobel Peace Laureate Shirin Ebadi proposed this plan of action during her public talk on Friday at Florida State University’s Turnbull Conference Center to a full audience of students, staff, and fans.

Don't miss out on any of the programs and events offered by the Center for Leadership & Social Change, and find out about volunteer and related opportunities on campus and around the community.

With far-reaching work ranging from funding water wells in Ethiopia to working with children living in the Bolivian prison system to breaking down barriers to housing for local homeless people, 13 Florida State University students were recognized Wednesday for their commitment to making the world a better place.

Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Shirin Ebadi will speak at Florida State University about her efforts to improve peace and human rights in the Middle East and around the world.

Ebadi's visit to campus is part of her work with PeaceJam, an international education program built around Nobel Peace Prize laureates who work personally with youth to pass on the spirit, skills and wisdom they embody.
