to the Networking Center at RC! Our staff tries to provide support for
campus groups who could benefit by being connected to a community that
reaches beyond the campus gates. Given the keen interest in campus mediation
here at RC, we've recently taken up the challenge of helping
to connect campus mediation programs and mediators with one another.
This has not been easy, however, because campus mediation programs are
based in many different locations on campuses across North America,
and they serve many different populations.
far, what we've been able to do is conduct a thorough search of the
internet and construct a list of links to existing campus mediation
initiatives that have a web presence. The list has grown to close to
150 different campuses, and has admittedly become rather unwieldy. The
staff has just begun to work on coding the available information and
then entering it into a database to make it searchable in more useful
ways. However, you're more than welcome to check out our current list
Mediation Web Sites.

we taking part in a discussion during ADR Cyberweek about how to better
integrate high school peer mediators into college programs. We really
want to tap into the pool of already trained and experienced peer mediators!
We'd love to hear from you about your ideas. If you're interested, go
to the Peer Mediation Discussion on the Cyberweek
WebBoard. If it is your first time to the WebBoard, you'll have
to register, but its relatively painless. You can also just view messages
as a guest if you'd prefer that approach.
we hope we can find ways to be of service. We know that when people
work together, good things can happen!
