CMHERC Advisory Board Meets, Formalizes Membership

Advisors to the Conflict Management in Higher Education Resource Center gathered in Detroit April 8-11 to work on a set of initial guidelines for practice in higher education (see related news item in this issue), and to discuss the future direction of the resource center and clearinghouse.

The project, moving past the halfway point of its 3-year FIPSE grant, launched its new website ( in mid-February, and is working toward having it's full feature set online in time for the beginning of the academic year this Fall. The advisory group jumped right in and participated in a website usability testing process conducted by the project's internal evaluation team.

The gathered advisors, representing a broad spectrum of the higher education conflict resolution community, also worked together to establish clear guidelines for the functioning of the board, and to lay out the initial approach to terms for board membership. It was agreed that members would serve 2-year (potentially renewable) terms that were staggered, so that not all members terms would be ending at the same time. A subset of the assembled group has accepted formal invitations to serve on the board during the 2001/2002-2002/2003 (academic years) term, while others will serve in a more informal capacity, or perhaps to join the board this Fall when the second round of board members are added.
