This past January (2019), Humber College’s Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) Graduate program, in partnership with St. Stephen’s Community House and Ignite Student Union (IGNITE), successfully opened the on-campus Dispute Resolution Clinic (DRC) with service locations at both Lakeshore and North campuses.
The DRC helps students with everything from personal conflicts to issues between tenants and landlords. This partnership continues to be an exciting opportunity for students from the Faculty of Business' Post Graduate program to apply their academic skills in a practicum-based environment, offering conflict coaching and mediation services for students facing conflicts. In the past 8 months, the DRC has enabled support for students navigating group-project conflicts, cultural conflicts, relationship conflicts, as well as support for those students pursuing academic appeals.
We believe this valuable service continues to enable Humber and University of Guelph-Humber students' overall academic success by equipping them with life skills to navigate what are sometimes emotionally charged situations. DRC student representatives continue to spread the word of the clinics' services this year with appearances at Open Market Place, International Student Orientation as well as a myriad of other customized Conflict Management Workshops delivered to various faculty programs.
If you are, or someone you know, is struggling with a conflict, the DRC student clinicians are here to listen and help. Office hours are Tuesday & Thursday from 10 a.m.- 2 p.m., or you can book an appointment online.
