Effective Conflict Resolution Seminar
In addition to resolving cases that reach a point at which informal intervention is not effective, the Center offers a seminar on effective conflict resolution in the residence halls upon request from the residence life staff. The seminar provides students with a three hour interactive learning experience in communication, negotiation and mediation designed to empower them to resolve disputes on their own. When offered in addition to formal coursework and in conjunction with the peer mediation program, a profoundly important impact on the culture of the campus can be accomplished. Students are learning in a variety of settings how to manage and end conflict productively.
