Our conflict and dispute resolution (CRES) students have delivered thousands of hours of valuable service to public, private, non- and for-profit organizations, small and large. We’d love to partner with you to provide support to your organization and a transformational experience for our students.
The basics of our program:
- Internships are required
- Students must complete a minimum of 320 internship hours (eight credits)
- Students are required to complete a minimum of two credits at each internship site
- (Many choose to complete all eight credits with a single internship site.)
- Internships should be mutually beneficial to the student and organization
- Students work with their onsite supervisors to create SMART (specific, measurable, achievable, relevant, and time-bound) goals
- Onsite supervisors oversee the interns’ work, mentor the students, evaluate the students’ performance, and approve the students’ time logs
- Students must blog about their internships
- (Blogs can be private or publicly visible based on the comfort of the student and organization.)
Our curriculum includes skills in mediation, negotiation, cross-cultural dynamics, research, organizational conflict, environmental and public policy work, family dynamics, international competencies, facilitation, dialogue, and more.
