Decolonizing Student Conduct: Adaptable and Restorative Approaches to Conflict Transformation

Date(s): May 5, 2021

Time: 2:00 PM  EST - 3:00 PM  EST

Organizational approaches to addressing discord are historically modeled on criminal processes with limited opportunities for dialogue and restoration. Like their criminal justice counterparts, such practices employ oppressive mechanisms that discount the voices of those involved and disproportionately harm underrepresented communities. Applying a spectrum model of conflict resolution better promotes healing, equity, and social justice through peace. Participants in this session will explore adaptable and restorative practices to address campus discord and ways to implement conflict resolution policies and practices.

Learning Outcomes:
1. Compare retributive and restorative approaches to student conflict resolution
2. Understand several adaptable and restorative practices and resources for student conduct programs
3. Explore questions and implementation steps for campuses considering new practices
