SOP 3515: Foundations of Conflict Transformation 

Credits: 3

Description: This course engages diverse approaches to the theory and practice of conflict resolution and the methods for understanding, managing, and transforming conflict as means toward personal, organizational, and systemic change. The course explores the nature of conflict that is borne by individual, relational, cultural, and structural differences and inequities. Understanding how we respond to conflict can be highly enlightening and facilitate transformational learning through academic, experiential and reflective engagement. Leaders need to be able to negotiate it in ways that don't simply resolve conflict, but transform it as people, organizations and systems change toward constructive ends that advance the common good and build a world of peace and justice. This course will teach students the skills to engage those change efforts. This course satisfies the primary elective requirement for the Leadership Minor.
