The Bahá’í Chair for World Peace "at the University of Maryland is an academic institution dedicated to developing and applying material and spiritual knowledge in cooperative pursuits of global peace, social and economic justice, and human security. This is accomplished through a disciplined program focused on a limited number of compelling concerns with strategic objectives applied in an operational forum.

"The Chair is part of the Center for International Development and Conflict Management under the auspices of the College of Behavorial and Social Sciences, and is supported by public and private funds, including the Muhammad Ali Faizi Memorial Fund." [1]

"The mission of the Bahá'í Chair for World Peace is to develop alternatives to the violent resolution of conflict management, global education, international development, spiritual awareness, and world trade; to share the experience of the Bahá'í world community in building a global society; and to offer the community as a model for study."
