Center for Conflict Management

The University of Akron has a long and proud history of the interdisciplinary study of conflict because understanding the nature of conflict is the first step toward reducing conflict and violence at home, in our communities, workplaces and schools. The Center for Conflict Management, jointly administered by the departments of Political Science and Sociology, seeks to build on that tradition by combining courses in several departments to enhance the capacity of students to effectively work toward reducing the harms associated with conflict and violence—from interpersonal to international.
