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. While it is a Kellogg School of Management research center, Northwestern University faculty and Ph.D. students are welcome to participate in DRRC activities. Additionally, faculty at other Chicago-area universities may participate in DRRC activities as affiliates.
DRRC is managed by an executive director appointed by the Kellogg dean. Its advisory committee reviews DRRC activities annually, and consults with the dean's office on research, executive and continuing education, and development.
