Date: Wednesday, December 13, 2017

Time: 3:15 PM - 4:30 PM

Location: Haldeman Center, Room 031


Workshop Overview

Restorative justice (RJ) is collaborative decision-making process that involves harmed parties, offenders, and others seeking to hold offenders accountable by having them accept responsibility for their offenses and to the best of their ability repair the harm they caused and work to rebuild trust. These principles can be effectively applied to daily interactions, meetings, and issues in the workplace.
