Our program provides a focused and effective method to improve the very critical interactions between graduate students and faculty in order to improve doctoral student retention rates and the quality of graduate education and to effectively resolve conflicts when they arise.
- learning interest-based approaches and skills for negotiation and conflict resolution;
- discussions, using video vignettes as conversation triggers, about the specific areas of possible conflict and differing expectation within their discipline, or more broadly in graduate education generally; and
- using interest-based negotiation approaches and skills to establish collectively agreed-upon departmental understandings of mutual expectations and responsibilities.
Faculty and graduate student versions of the workshop are available here. For a list of face-to-face sessions visit the Career Success events pages, or click on "Negotiation and Conflict Management" in the Academic Career menu or "Conflict Resolution" in the PREP matrix.
