The Office of Diversity and Inclusion is piloting a restorative justice initiative. Restorative justice offers an alternative to our formal student conduct procedures, a resource for conflict mediation, as well as a tool to build community and strengthen ties.
- Community Circles - Community conversations centered around a common theme or topic, conducted by trained facilitators. Community Circles can be proactive (building relationships across a group) or reactive (such as a tool for processing in the wake of a traumatic event).
- Restorative Conferencing - A conflict mediation tool between two or more parties, where both those who have caused harm and those who have been harmed work together to brainstorm constructive next steps to rebuild trust and redress the harm.
If you are interested in restorative justice services, please contact the Assistant Director of Diversity and Inclusion at firstname.lastname@example.org.
