SOP 3515: Fundamentals 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 a means toward personal, organizational, and systemic change. This course explores the nature of conflict that is borne by individual, relational, cultural and structural differences and inequalities. Understanding how we respond to conflict can be highly enlightening and facilitate transformative learning through academic, experiential and reflective engagements. Leaders need to be able to negotiate conflict in ways that don't simply resolve it, but transforms 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 is open to all Juniors and Seniors and satisfies primary elective requirement for the Minor in Community Leadership.
