About Us 

The Conflict Management Center is a graduate student-led educational initiative of the Program for the Advancement of Research on Conflict and Collaboration. We are graduate students interested in conflict transformation theory and developing the necessary skills to transform conflict into opportunity. 

Our mission:

The mission of the Conflict Management Center (CMC) is to help individuals understand the fundamentals of conflict transformation theory, develop the skills to transform conflict into opportunity, and empower themselves to apply these skills.

Our training workshops:

We work with faculty and staff at Syracuse University to develop training curriculum and skill building workshops in a unique collaborative effort. Students and community members build their knowledge base in conflict resolution through an array of professional workshops. Many of the participants of CMC activities are graduate students in Public Administration, International Relations and a variety of social sciences at SU but workshops and other events are open to both the University and the greater Syracuse community.

Our trainers and consultants include faculty, staff, graduate students and community members who have experience and an interest in developing conflict management, interpersonal communication, facilitation, assertion, interest-based problem solving, mediation and negotiation skills. 

CMC Associates

We also offer opportunities for workshiop participants to become CMC Associates and serve as trainers or facilitators for a variety of departments and organizations at SU and in the wider Syracuse community. "Train the trainer" workshops are designed to fully prepare volunteers for these programs. This also serves as a way to introduce the community at large to CMC’s outreach activities.  

CMC is active in activities both on and off the Syracuse University campus. For more information, visit our TRAINING and OUTREACH pages or download our BROCHURE.
