Strategies and Tips

University life provides students with a dynamic experience rich in new learning, relationships, and opportunities.  Engaging fully in this experience brings many rewards—and also, inevitably, creates conflict.  Conflict is a normal part of every person’s life and yet not many feel confident about dealing with it effectively. Here are some resources that may be of help.
