Conflict Resolution Institute

Cultivating Scholar—Practitioner Relations

The quality of our life depends not on conflicts, but our response to them.

The Conflict Resolution Institute (CRI) at the University of Denver bridges nine academic units and five professional schools to create truly multidisciplinary offerings in the theory, research, and practice of conflict resolution. The Academic Program offers an M.A. degree, while the Center for Conflict Engagement coordinates conferences, visiting scholars, joint projects, and community partnerships. CRI focuses on reflective practice, conflict analysis and assessment, conflict resolution capacity building, and restoring the community fabric in ongoing intractable conflict and post-conflict settings. Institute start-up and development was generously supported by a gift from the Henry R. Luce Foundation.
