Housed within the University of Oregon School of Law, the Oregon Office for Community Dispute Resolution (OOCDR) supports the delivery of upstream alternative dispute resolution services across Oregon.
OOCDR promotes inclusive and accessible mediation services that are tailored to the community. We support the network of Community Dispute Resolution Centers across the state through grantmaking, consultation, training, research, technical assistance, networking, and collaborative activities and initiatives.
Resolution Centers provide direct services, help connect people to local providers (e.g., financial resources, legal aid, rehousing & credit counseling), and provide conflict resolution education for youth and adult community members.
Supporting Inclusive Access to Justice
Our program aims to increase underserved community member's access to preventative services and improve access to justice in Oregon. Our partners at Oregon Community Dispute Resolution Centers across Oregon are working to create safer communities by providing a broad range of accessible dispute resolution services.
Learn more about OOCDR's impact in our 2022 Biennial Report.
