Interactions in higher education constitute informal instruction as well as formal lessons in courses. Administrators and other leaders across the campus community provide models for conflict management that has two goals: resolution and transformation. This session will clarify the two goals and present some methods that have been useful for accomplishing them. Participants will share their knowledge of pro-social methods that have been useful for conflict resolution and transformation. Pro-social approaches to conflict are attentive to the needs of everyone in a conflict.
