Conflict Management in Higher Education (J-B HE Single Issue Higher Education)
Conflict exists in all facets of life, and the world of higher education is hardly exempt. In fact, conflict is particularly inevitable in an academic setting, where independent thought is encouraged. In this issue of New Directions for Higher Education, the authors offer innovative methods for addressing the conflicts that arise among faculty, between students and faculty, and with the college and the community at large. They reveal how an approach that emphasizes managing conflicts, rather than resolving them, can turn conflicts into a positive force. The likelihood that a conflict will be constructive substantially increases when the conflict is openly acknolwedged, analyzed, and dealt with. This is the 92nd issue of the quarterly journal New Directions for Higher Education. For more information on the series, please see the Journals and Periodicals page.
