UALR Launches Center for Public Conflict Solutions
Dean Brenton also created the Center for Conflict Resolution at Abilene Christian University and has recently launched a graduate certificate in Conflict Mediation at UALR in cooperation with the William H. Bowen School of Law. She is an inaugural faculty member for the Clinton School of Public Service where she teaches a core course entitled "Communication Processes and Conflict Transformation."
The Center will be part of the Institute of Government and will operate in collaboration with the UALR William H. Bowen School of Law. It will coordinate UALR’s interdisciplinary Graduate Certificate in Conflict Mediation. Ruth Craw has been named Center Director.
A start-up Advisory Group comprising state and local leaders is being formed to help define the Center's mission.
The Center has already been involved in assessing a conflict over a proposed development in Little Rock. For more information about the Center, contact Ruth Craw.
