Albert Schweitzer Institute
The Albert Schweitzer Institute is inspired by the ideals and example of 1952 Nobel Peace Prize Laureate, Dr. Albert Schweitzer, who was known for his philosophy of reverence for life and his call to service, to make one’s life one’s argument.

- supporting community development in underserved areas of our local community and the world
- organizing conferences and speakers on peace globally, at the United Nations and on campus
- motivating young people to serve the community and the environment as a way of life
The institute is located adjacent to the Mount Carmel Campus at 660 New Road. For more information, please contact the office at 203-582-3144.
