About Scheinman

The Scheinman Institute combines the academic depth of faculty in conflict/dispute resolution, employee relations, diversity and inclusion, and labor relations with the practical knowledge of leading practitioners in the field to provide intensive skill development for individuals, and best practices for organizations.

The Institute trains more students in mediation and arbitration than any other school in the United States.

Our Mission

We operate under the principle that conflict is an inevitable part of human interaction and its resolution is essential for personal and organizational growth and health. We exist to deeply study how and why conflict happens, and turn that knowledge into education, training, and practice. 

We partner with organizations and individuals to develop practices and cultures that effectively manage conflict. When leaders develop their skills in managing conflict, organizations become more effective.

We combine Cornell University’s academic depth with the knowledge of leading practitioners to provide skills and strategies for individuals and best practices for organizations. We sit in Cornell’s ILR School, the leading institution studying the workplace.
