Scheinman Institute Conflict Resolution Club

The Scheinman Institute on Conflict Resolution at Cornell University promotes interdisciplinary education, research and training in dispute resolution for students, academics, neutrals and practitioners. The Institute builds on the Cornell ILR School’s proud tradition of instruction in the practical use of conflict resolution skills in the workplace and beyond.

The issues surrounding conflict in the workplace are the center of our public discourse and public policy.
It takes a certain set of skills and expertise to navigate this changing landscape.

"With my wife, Laurie, we endowed the Scheinman Institute on Conflict Resolution to provide students, professionals and others interested in dispute resolution with the tools they need to help create a better society. Today, Scheinman Institute faculty and alumni stand at the forefront in resolving the most complicated and significant work-related issues."

-Marty Scheinman, Founder
Scheinman Institute on Conflict Resolution

Watch how the Scheinman Institute addresses the critical conflict resolution challenges of our time through its research, teaching, training and outreach.
