EQUITY, DIVERSITY, AND INCLUSION
April 11, 2019
The Center for Faculty Diversity and Inclusion is offering mediation training to a new cohort of faculty mediators. The 5-day training will be held on main campus, July 29 - August 2, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. each day. Breakfast and lunch will be provided daily.
This skill-building course is provided by the National Conflict Resolution Center, an international leader in conflict resolution, and meets the standards of the California Dispute Resolution Programs Act. The course will introduce faculty to effective mediation techniques through a combination of lectures, simulations, and exercises. Here are just a few comments from previous faculty participants:
· “Life transforming. I learned such transformative skills to use all the time, not just in mediation but to help address issues before they arise to the level of mediation.”
· “Wonderful experiential learning experience.... Great mediator role models.”
· “This was the most effective, useful training I have ever attended! Not only can I use it in conflict resolution, but there are life skills that I can use!”
Interested faculty should apply by May 6, 2019 at https://forms.gle/wkbacJpJLTfE6jBZ6. Faculty of all ranks and disciplines are welcome, including non-senate members. People of diverse backgrounds are especially encouraged to apply. To be considered, faculty must be able to complete the 40-hour training.
The Faculty Peer Mediation Program launched in January of 2018 to help faculty resolve interpersonal conflicts through a collegial, informal and confidential process.
