Center Overview

The Center for Negotiation and Conflict Resolution (CNCR) is at the forefront of a movement that believes disputes can be settled by constructive negotiation and consensus-building and problem-solving approaches instead of by force or adversarial argument. Created in 1986, the Center's mission comprises education, training, research and direct services in preventing and resolving disputes. It serves all three campuses at Rutgers University and serves as a resource both in and outside New Jersey for those interested in negotiation and the theory and practice of conflict resolution. The Center is also part of a consortium of eighteen conflict resolution centers at such universities as Harvard, Michigan, Minnesota, Penn State, Northwestern, Stanford, Syracuse and Wisconsin. The centers collaborate through joint research projects and workshops, seminars, and conferences that explore ideas and works in progress.
