PeaceJam, a private two-day workshop for high school students and teachers, will be held at Rhodes on February 23 and 24. Administered locally through BRIDGES, PeaceJam is a Denver-based foundation whose mission is to create a new generation of young leaders committed to positive change in themselves, their communities and the world through the inspiration of Nobel Peace Laureates.

Featured speaker at Rhodes will be the 1992 Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Rigoberta Menchú Tum. She is making her second appearance at Rhodes, having previously been the guest of PeaceJam in 2004.
