Setting Expectations and Resolving Conflict in Graduate Education

Posted by on Tuesday, March 18, 2014 in Events, News.

Professors Rique Campa and Judith Stoddart, Michigan State University, will lead an interactive session for faculty, teaching an interest-based approach to setting expectations and resolving conflicts among graduate students and faculty. The discussion will focus on ways to identify common interests that can help construct mutually satisfying options. This will be a “train the trainer” session so that participants will be equipped to conduct similar workshops for faculty and graduate students in their departments. Co-sponsored by GradLEAF, VU Grad Career Services, and the CFT.

A second session, also facilitated by Campa and Stoddart, will be held later the same day and is designed for Ph.D. students and post-docs. This workshop teaches an interest-based approach to setting expectations and resolving conflicts in graduate education. The interest-based approach recognizes the legitimate interests of each person, how others may be affected, and leads to a more useful discussion in which common interests may inform and permit exploration of options with a greater array of satisfying choices for both individuals. In addition to faculty, is session is useful for postdocs and graduate students. Dinner will be provided.
