Upcoming Campus Conversation: Conflict Resolution

Please join us for a "brown bag lunch" Campus Conversation with Julie Showers, Director of the Office for Conflict Resolution (OCR), on Tuesday, March 24, from noon to 1 p.m. in Mississippi Room, 321 Coffman Union (map).

The OCR works with faculty, staff and students systemwide to help demystify conflict, and provides a safe, confidential place for concerns to be raised. By enhancing competency around conflict, the University can advance its goal of establishing a campus climate in which everyone is treated with respect, and empowered to do their best work. Practical suggestions regarding how to approach conflict will be provided.

A discussion will follow the brief presentation. RSVP if you plan to attend. Visit us here the day of the event to join by UMConnect.
