The Office of Student Conduct and Community Standards is committed to the development and education of individual students. To support the growth of students, we are proud to provide a pilot program offering conflict management services starting Fall 2018. Disagreements and conflict are a natural and inevitable part of life and it is our goal to provide students with the tools needed to resolve conflict peacefully.

Conflict Coaching

Conflict Coaching is a structured one-on-one opportunity for students to gain insight and skills needed to resolve conflict.  Students will meet with a trained staff member within the Office of Student Conduct and Community Standards to help the student identify their conflict resolution style and work towards their conflict resolution goals. With the help of a Coach, students will review and consider the nature of a particular conflict, how to handle conflict in general, and response modes available to deal effectively with conflict.

Training

The Office of Student Conduct is available to facilitate trainings on a range of topics that can be customized for specific audiences upon request. Trainings will be an hour long and topics cover the following areas: Conflict Resolution Styles, Listening and Communication Skills and How to Have Difficult Conversations. Other topics can be requested as needed. Trainings contain both lecture style and interactive activities to allow for participants to practice skills.
