Conflict Resolution Month


October 2022 was our 10th Annual Conflict Resolution Month!

Thank you to all of our speakers who educated us on ways to promote peaceful communication. Although our month is concluded, we wanted to leave the names and workshop titles online as a token of appreciation to our speakers.

Conflict Resolution Month was a time for our community to come together and learn techniques that will help us learn how to manage and resolve conflicts. Conflict Resolution Month, sponsored by Student Legal & Mediation Services, is an example of innovative programming that helps our community focus on career readiness, personal and professional development, and, ultimately, student success. With world-class speakers coming to SHSU, Conflict Resolution Month helps to elevate the reputation and visibility of SHSU. Finally, most of us don't do conflict well, and by having experts engage in how to handle conflict better, we are helping to solve one of the many critical challenges that face our state, nation, and world.
