While ideal, a community with zero conflict is unrealistic. Why break out into a fight when you could, instead, have the tools needed to communicate effectively?
The Conflict Resolution Facilitators (CRFs) at WashU offer instruction and guidance to assist residents when they find themselves in moments of conflict. Through utilizing a variety of tools, including conflict-coaching, facilitated dialogue, mediation, and restorative circles, CRFs offer both proactive and reactive measures to help students before, during and after disagreements arise. No matter the size of the problem or the group involved, the CRFs are here to help!
Please contact us by dropping in during our office hours, listed below, or schedule a meeting by clicking the link to our Residential Life Conflict Resolution Meeting Form below.
We look forward to helping you find a restorative resolution to any conflict that you may be facing!
