to the CMHE REPORT
to the inaugural issue of the CONFLICT
MANAGEMENT IN HIGHER EDUCATION REPORT. The
REPORT is intended
to be a free, bi-monthly online periodical serving higher
education constituencies interested in conflict management.
The specific goal of the REPORT
is to provide useful resources, information,
news, and brief feature articles that
will be of interest to people working on conflict resolution
issues in higher education contexts. Potential audience
members include campus
mediators and program
and staff looking for new conflict management
options, faculty members teaching
Conflict Studies or ADR courses, and researchers
and systems designers exploring
campus conflict processes.
REPORT will draw
on material that has been developed over the last several
years for the Campus
Mediation Resources Website (http://www.mtds.wayne.edu/campus.htm).
And now, as the Higher Education affiliate of the new
Information Project (funded by the Hewlett Foundation,
see related story in this issue) even more resources
can be brought to bear making the REPORT
as timely and useful as possible. The Editor, Bill Warters,
also hopes to establish a network of editorial
correspondents and writerswho will provide content
and ideas for the REPORT as it matures. Clearly it will
be difficult to sustain a rich bi-monthly publication
without help from others in the field. You can indicate
your interest in participating in some manner when you
fill out the registration form, or by email
at a later date.
the newsletter will remain free for at least the first
year, readers are asked to complete an online survey/subscription
form as the "price of admission" in order
to be included in the publication's mailing list. To
subcribe to the newsletter (and perhaps provide news,
articles or resources for it), please go click on the
found to the left and complete the form you find there.
There is also a link to the subscription form from the
Subscribers will receive an email announcement with
a brief summary of the current contents when new issues
are posted, making it easy to stay in touch and informed.
hope you enjoy and learn from the REPORT!
