DRRC has longstanding partnerships with the International Academy of Conflict Management (IACM) and the Academy of Management (AOM), two organizations that convene faculty, Ph.D. and postdoctoral fellows to share their knowledge and research.
The Dispute Resolution Research Center is thrilled to announce the first DRRC Pedagogy Competition! The Competition’s purpose is to solicit new submissions for the DRRC materials library that address important topics related to diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI). Applicants should submit proposals to create new exercises, cases, simulations, and other educational materials related to diversity, equity, and inclusion within conflict and collaboration settings. The DRRC will select up to five winners, and the expected award ranges from $5,000 to $10,000. Proposals will be accepted until October 1, 2023.
