About the Student Conflict Resolution Program


informal, voluntary, informed, unbiased mindful private self-determined, shared community responsibilityCommunication can be hard at times. We believe that most disagreement can be settled through open authentic dialogue. Our programming is informal, voluntary, and proactive.

Mission: Through the lens of shared community responsibility, we offer an array of programming aimed at infusing the campus with students who are able to have deep authentic conversations, the skills to resolve their own conflicts, build long-lasting relationships, and take ownership of our shared community.
