Inaugural Campus Community Circle

The Student Conduct and Community Standards Office, in collaboration with United Students Government and the Residence Life Office, will host a Campus Community Circle to celebrate the opening of the Restorative Justice Center (Porter Hall 15). All students are invited to participate in the discussion “Exploring the Dimensions of Our Identity,” which will include a conversation about talking circles, a core component of the restorative justice process. A talking circle, sometimes called a peacemaking circle, uses a structural framework to build relationships and to address conflict within a community.
