In an effort to strengthen the campus community and build institutional capacity around conflict resolution, the Staff Council Advocacy Committee is making a call for volunteers to be Conflict Resolution Coaches. This Staff Council initiative is in support of the institutional priorities for this year and has received endorsement from college administration. Below is a description for the role of coaches.
Conflict Resolution Coaches are staff who are trained in conflict resolution strategies and have extensive knowledge in college policy and procedures. They provide assistance to college staff who need help in addressing various kinds of conflict that may arise through their employment at the college. This assistance is handled through listening, recommending appropriate college resources, facilitating conversations, and helping the individual identify appropriate methods of resolving their conflict on their own. The team will also identify and report trends they see among the staff to the staff council or the appropriate administrator. All conversations are kept strictly private unless otherwise required by law and college policy to report (Title IX violations, etc…). These individuals do not replace any formal process of the college and operate on a peer to peer support basis.
To volunteer please fill out this brief form and let us know who you are and why this interests you.
Please join us and help strengthen your community. If you know someone who would be a great fit, please encourage them to volunteer.
