If you work in education, you understand that conflict is an unavoidable and common occurrence. Between the multiple stakeholders at the state, federal, and district administration levels, as well as the faculty and students, there are many parties involved throughout the school system. Our Conflict Management in Education certification will prepare you to effectively reduce the frequency of conflict, diffuse current problems, and manage fair resolutions. This concentration provides a vital skill that can increase career opportunities while simultaneously fostering a more civil educational environment.
This certificate is offered by AU Midwest.
