Restorative justice practices are viewed as foundational values for student conduct work. However, repairing harm and restoring trust through the conduct process, especially in our current campus climate, continues to be a struggle. We often enter each academic year with the best intentions of being more educational, restorative, and social justice-oriented, but we then lose sight of the ongoing development that must occur once the complex cases and incidents begin. This webinar will highlight key strategies, successes, challenges, and lessons learned when infusing restorative justice practices into the training and ongoing development of hearing board members and conduct officers. The presenters will also discuss how they changed a campus culture from adversarial to restorative through the redevelopment of student conduct practices at their institution using restorative justice concepts.
