Restorative Practices in Higher Education

October 29 @ 12:30 pm - 5:00 pm MDT


Restorative Justice and Restorative Practices are increasingly recognized as effective alternatives to traditional punitive models in criminal justice, school and community settings. So, how can Restorative Practices be applied to the unique challenges faced by colleges and universities? This interactive half-day training will address current issues – such as Title IX, gender and sexual violence on campus – from a restorative and social justice perspective and features an introductory module on anti-racist/intrinsic bias. Join The Conflict Center to learn more about using Restorative Practices as an opportunity to solve conflicts on campus, build safer, healthier, more equitable campus communities and take responsibility for our behavior. Learn the basics of Restorative Practices, practical applications for higher education settings, and strategies for creating buy-in with your institution in this virtual training.

When conflict happens in the workplace or people experience inappropriate or difficult behavior at work, relationships are damaged and productivity often suffers.
Workplaces that embrace Restorative Practices have the potential to create a safer, happier and more effective workplace for everyone. Restorative Practices can be used within the workplace both as a preventative measure and to address conflict when it does arise, enabling teams and individuals to work well together.

Restorative Practices can be an effective way to resolve workplace conflict. It involves:
  • bringing together all those affected by conflict
  • providing a safe environment for the expression of perspective
  • allowing participants to come to a shared understanding
  • identifying creative ways to deal with conflict
  • providing opportunities to rebuild damaged relationships and strengthen teams 

Restorative approaches can also be used proactively within the workplace to build strong, positive relationships. Staff meetings, for example, can be focused on building relationships and based around a foundation of mutual respect.
