Training Institute Talking Series

Each semester, the Student Conduct Board hosts a series of events, The Talking Series, where we discuss difficult topics and current events issues such as Civil Discourse, Conflict Resolution, Healthy Relationships, and more. The main goal of our Talking Series is to provide the University of North Florida community with opportunities to learn more about student conduct issues that our office sees on a weekly basis.


We enjoy partnering with other departments around campus, to get everyone involved in these important discussions. We need to be open with each other and have conversations focused on topics that could be viewed as “more difficult” and The Talking Series is here to help implement that onto the UNF campus.

This Semester’s Talking Series Event Dates:

September 30 at 1pm: Your Voice, Your Choice

In partnership with the Department of Diversity Initiatives, our Assistant Director will be co-discussing civil discourse, protesting, counter-protesting, and how to act with agency while still honoring the Student Code of Conduct. While DDI is our main partner in this event, we have also reached out to other organizations around campus to give their input as well.

October 15 at 1pm: Conflict Resolution Day

It’s Conflict Resolution Day! The Association for Conflict Resolution celebrates Conflict Resolution Day each year on the third Thursday of October, and so do we! Today the Program Coordinator for the Student Conduct Office will be having an open discussion on Conflict Resolution. This conversation will be focused on promoting awareness of our new Alternative Dispute Resolution Process and its potential resolution methods of Conflict Coaching, Facilitated Dialogue, and Mediation, while verbalizing that conflict can be a positive thing if dealt with in a peaceful and productive manner.
