The Dispute Resolution Research Center (DRRC) was founded in the spring of 1986 by Northwestern University faculty in the Schools of Law, Management, and Arts and Sciences. DRRC is a Kellogg School of Management research center. Northwestern University faculty and Ph.D. students are welcome to participate in DRRC activities. Faculty at other Chicago area universities participate in DRRC activities as affiliates. The DRRC is managed by a director, appointed by the Kellogg Dean, and an Executive Committee consisting of faculty from at least two Northwestern University schools and three departments. The DRRC's Advisory Committee reviews the DRRC's activities annually, and consults with the Executive Committee on research, executive and continuing education, and development. The DRRC also publishes its Annual Report (PDF 1.02MB /60 pages).
