‘Iolani Peace Institute
Established to honor Dr. Berit Mexia,
a longtime inspirational faculty member.
Our mission is to promote peace inside and outside
the 'Iolani community in three forms:
inner peace, peace among people,
and peace with the natural environment.
To accomplish our mission, we will support appropriate
activities already being done by existing organizaitons
and also generate our own programs, such
as guest speakers, conferences, and active endeavors
that bring harmony to people's lives and to the world.
