Restorative Practices Training
Building Community, Restoring Relationships, Repairing Harm
Restorative practices enables us to foster positive relationships, respond to conflicts and problems, and raise consciousness about critical campus issues.

Participants will also be provided with concrete practices and new
skills for effectively collaborating with other stakeholders to initiate
restorative practices effectively.
- Spreading awareness of restorative practices among professional groups and in society
- Changing attitudes within existing networks

We understand that two full days is a lot to ask; however, we are confident that this training will be a catalyst that will enable relationships of all types to flourish and assist us in operationalizing the Community Living Principles and other aspirational goals in and beyond the Division of Student Affairs.
Thank you for considering this opportunity. Please do not hesitate to reach out to Jeff Cullen, Davonya Hall, Danielle Pettigrew, or Lauren Mauriello with any questions you might have, or for additional resources
