Volume 3, Number 1, Oct 2002

Welcome to Volume 3!

Welcome back readers! The staff of the Campus Conflict Resolution Resource Center hopes you had an enjoyable summer, assuming of course that you can still remember it! The academic year is now in full swing and we have been working hard to bring you another information-filled edition of the Report. As we launch into Volume 3 of the Report, with 7 issues already behind us, our goal remains to provide you with thought-provoking feature articles, useful resources and the latest news in the field.

In addition to our collection of tool reviews, and new items found in the periodicals, this issue features a thoughtful piece on restorative justice practices on campus, a report on research with college student leaders trained in conflict resolution, a piece on researching campus conflict "cultures," and an article on intervening in departmental level conflicts.

Also in this issue we're pleased to present the first in our series of Campus Conflict Resolution Briefing Papers, a set of commissioned papers on topics of particular interest to practitioners working in higher education settings. Our first paper explores the similarities and differences between mediation and ombuds work. Author Tim Griffin is the Ombuds officer at Northern Illinois University. He is well prepared for the task, bringing a Ph.D. in Higher Education and experience as a board member of the University and College Ombuds Association. Our second Brief, scheduled to run in the next issue, will examine the question of liability for campus mediation programs and practitioners.

Thanks once again for your continued interest in constructive approaches to working with and learning from conflict in higher education. Together I know we can improve the quality of life on campus.

Best regards,
Bill Warters
