April 30, 2012 - The Albert Schweitzer Institute led a delegation of students, staff and recent alumni to the 2012 Summit of Nobel Peace Prize Laureates April 23-25, 2012, in Chicago.

"I think it's important for our students to be exposed to leaders who have taken a real risk for peace and have had success," said David Ives, executive director of the institute. "It's a once in a lifetime opportunity."

President Barack Obama, former President Bill Clinton, former Costa Rican President Oscar Arias, the Dali Lama and Sean Penn are among the dignitaries who attended.
