About

Restorative Justice Across Student Affairs

In this intensive training, we will introduce you to restorative justice practices for building campus community and responding to student misconduct and campus climate issues. We will discuss restorative justice principles, various campus restorative practices, research findings, and how to restorative justice supports student development.

Restorative justice is gaining popularity on college campuses as a philosophical and practical response to issues of campus climate and student misconduct.

This training will introduce participants to the “whole campus approach” to RJ, which includes three tiers of intervention. The first is designed for prevention education and intended for all members of the campus community—students, faculty, and staff. The goal is to build and strengthen relationships, foster trust, and develop interpersonal communication and conflict resolution skills.

When an incident of harm occurs, Tier II restorative conferences can address the harm as an alternative or supplement to formal/adversarial hearings. These are facilitated dialogues that include harmed parties, those who caused harm, and support people that help (a) individuals accept and acknowledge responsibility for their offenses, (b) to the best of their ability repair the harm, and (c) work to reduce the risk of reoffense by building positive social ties to the community and improving campus climate.

Tier III restorative interventions assist with the reintegration of students who have been suspended. Not only are these students anxious about how they will be received upon their return to campus, but the wider community needs reassurance that they will be responsible and committed to causing no further harm. Reentry circles are designed to provide both support and accountability.

The training will provide theory, evidence, and experiential learning opportunities for student affairs professionals interested in learning the philosophy and practice of the whole campus approach to restorative justice.
