Monday, October 29, 2018

The Conflict Resolution Certificate Program in the Communication Studies Department received a donation of $25,000 from Frank and Linda Kurtz in October 2017. The purpose of their gift is to conduct conflict management workshops that provide an opportunity for SFSU undergraduate students to learn approaches and skills for constructive dialogue in social interactions where diverse viewpoints can create tension and conflict. Dr. Victoria Chen, the Director of the Conflict Resolution Certificate Program, conducted the inaugural workshop in April 2018. The second workshop will take place in November 2018.
