The Five College Program in Peace and World Security Studies (PAWSS) is a multidisciplinary educational program designed to stimulate student and faculty interest in the study of critical international issues, especially those connecting issues of conflict and the environment.

Since its inception in 1983, the aim of the PAWSS program has been to enhance faculty and student awareness of critical peace and security issues, and to facilitate the examination of these issues in the college classroom.
