There is not a workplace, community, or relationship where conflict does not pose a threat to progress – and for 10 years our programming has provided participants and graduates with the knowledge and skills to both formally mediate specific situations and to lead through conflict to resolution. From lawyers and law enforcement to teachers and social workers, and from human resources and employee assistance to those in faith-based/community-based organizations, our programming has helped the professional development of all participants and has led to impact in the organizations and communities where they operate. – Jake Bucher, PhD | Founding Dean, College of Applied Social Sciences
