Meet our partners and inter-entity collaborators at Columbia University, NECR and MD-ICCCR:
NECR, Master of Science, at School of Professional Studies
The Negotiation and Conflict Resolution (NECR) Program combines theory and applied training to prepare students to develop practical models for negotiating and resolving disputes among parties with differing objectives and desires. This graduate program is part of a rich history of conflict resolution at Columbia University. The graduate program’s training philosophy is grounded in a commitment to interactive, dialogue-based methods of managing and resolving conflict. The focus is on building common ground, establishing dialogue, applying practical skills, ensuring representation and recognition, and forging relationships.
The Morton Deutsch International Center on Cooperation and Conflict Resolution (MD-ICCCR) is a center at Teachers College committed to developing knowledge and practice to promote constructive conflict resolution, effective cooperation, and social justice. The center partners with individuals, groups, organizations, and communities to create tools and environments through which conflicts can be resolved constructively and just and peaceful relationships can thrive. The center works with sensitivity to cultural differences and emphasizes the links between theory, research, and practice. While many conflict resolution centers provide training and consulting, here practice is rooted in original scholarship.
