Creating a World of Peace by Living for Others

Collegiate Association for the Research of Principles (CARP)

CARP was founded by the late Rev. Sun Myung Moon and his wife, Dr. Hak Ja Han Moon. Their vision for young people was that they would be educated in serving the world before serving themselves, their families, and their nations. The way they saw it, the passion that young people have is enough to move nations, and when young people commit to something, they are tenacious. Rev. and Dr. Moon hoped that CARP would provide the stimulation and environment these young people need to flourish not just intellectually and financially but, most importantly, in heart.


We are an organization of chapters on college campuses, created for students by students. We create programs, events, and activities promoting principles and raising leaders. Student leaders engage others in thoughtful and meaningful discussion as well as deep and long-lasting relationships for peace and growth.

Our Mission

To advance world peace by empowering youth and students to become global citizens through character education and peace projects supporting the UN Sustainable Development Goals 

“What if the next generation of young people, our future leaders,  grew up with a global mindset where they think of others more than themselves? In essence, isn’t this the heart that makes a hero? What if such “heroes” became business owners, educators, doctors, politicians, environmentalists and public service workers? Wouldn’t this culture of heroes bring about sustainable peace in families, societies, nations and the world? The vision of International Youth and Students for Peace is to create a culture of peace in every part of the world where it becomes a norm to seek the benefit of others even above myself.”
