Volunteers Sought for Alternative Dispute Resolution Committee
In the interest of improving the availability and quality of conflict-resolution processes for students, an Alternative Dispute Resolution Committee is forming for the 2009-10 academic year. Members of the University community who have an expertise or passion for the use of alternative dispute resolution and a desire to help the undergraduate community become more involved in these programs are invited to join. Committee members are asked to volunteer their time for regular committee meetings and training, and to act as case managers and facilitators of mediation and/or restorative justice cases. For details, contact Morgan Levy, assistant dean of students for the College, at mlevy@admin.rochester.edu or 275-4085.
