Mission and Program Description
The mission of the Conflict Intervention Program is to help on-campus students constructively address differences by providing opportunities to engage in dialogue that promotes accountability, mutual responsibility, self-reflection, effective listening, creative thinking, and ultimately, new understanding.
Avenues for addressing conflict include
- conflict coaching
- group facilitation
- Developing the ability to understand one's own patterns of conflict engagement while recognizing the variety of conflict styles (compromise, cooperation, collaboration, and consensus building) that exist.
- Helping students recognize the positive opportunities that can be presented by engaging in conflict productively.
- Fostering active listening skills to facilitate understanding.
