Faculty conflict resolution group seeks volunteers

Emory Report | Nov. 6, 2014

Emory faculty members interested in exploring the development of a faculty-led mediation process at Emory are being sought to serve on a special committee focused upon faculty conflict resolution.

A new initiative — approved at September's Faculty Council meeting — calls for assessing Emory's existing and potential capacity for faculty-led mediation. Volunteers are being sought for a faculty conflict resolution committee to develop a new faculty mediation process, says Faculty Council Chair Kathryn Yount, Asa Griggs Chandler Chair of Global Health and associate professor of global health and sociology. Tentative plans include an initial training in May.

Faculty members who have current certification in mediation, or would like to become certified in mediation, and are interested in participating should send the following information to Yount:

  • Name
  • Department/School
  • Preferred contact phone number
  • Preferred contact email
  • Current certification in mediation?
  • Interested to be certified in mediation?
  • Hours per week available for service

For more information on the committee contact Sheryl Heron, co-chair, Michael Sacks, co-chair, or Yount.
