The Institute on Conflict Resolution became my niche at ILR. My required collective bargaining class was co-taught by Professors Lipsky and Seeber, and I enjoyed that class more than any other I had taken in ILR until that point. I expressed my interest in the subject to Professor Lipsky, who hired me as a research assistant with the Institute; I continued to work there as I took coursework in negotiations, systems of conflict resolution, and arbitration and reached the limits of ILR's dispute resolution curriculum.
After a discussion with Ariel Avgar, ICR's Director of ADR Program Evaluation and Development, I was invited to attend the Institute's Mediation workshop in New York City as a student assistant, where I had the privilege to integrate ILR extension resources into my undergraduate education. From the moment I became involved with the Institute, every individual with whom I interacted went out of their way to help me succeed.
