Workshops, Trainings, and Requests


The staff in OSCCR is available to support campus partners and student groups by facilitating workshops, training sessions, and presentations by request. There are two different types of forms outlines and linked below.

Requests should be submitted a MINIMUM of two weeks in advance, and should be scheduled between 9:00am – 5:00pm, Monday through Friday.

Community Circle Requests

The Community Circle Series is co-facilitated by OSCCR professional staff and our Conflict Resolution Liaison (CRL) student leaders. OSCCR accepts topic suggestions for our Community Circle Series and requests to host Community Circles for interested groups. You may also request to collaborate with OSCCR on hosting a Community Circle on your own. Fill out the OSCCR Community Circle Request Form for more information.

Workshop & Training Requests

Below, you can review some of the training and presentation topics that OSCCR frequently offers. To request one of these topics, or to discuss an alternative topic to best suit your current needs, fill out the Workshop and Training Request Form.

This session explores how conflict can impact dynamic environments. Various components to this session include: understanding personal conflict styles, exploring meaningful response to conflict, and learning conversational tools and skills to apply in everyday life. Ideal length is 60-120 minutes.

When working with systems and procedures that involve multiple people, clear and effective documentation can often greatly enhance efficiency and quality. Using incident reports and decision rationales as guides, this session will highlight best practices for documenting behavior, communication, and policy interpretation. Ideal length is 60 minutes.

Intentional, respectful dialogue can break down unnecessary barriers to communication. This session seeks to help participants consider how skills such as active listening, alternative perspective-taking, and reframing can assist them in communicating more intentionally and effectively. Ideal length is 60-90 minutes.

This session seeks to help participants under the conflict resolution services available in OSCCR and how restorative justice practices inform those services. OSCCR utilizes conflict coaching, mediation, and Community Circles and is able to present on each service broadly and/or to cater a presentation to one specific type to provide a foundational introductory training to participants. Ideal length is 60-90 minutes.

The Community Standards are the baseline expectations for all Loyola University Chicago students. They are more than just a “rule book”, and offer important information about University definitions and procedures. How well do YOU know the Community Standards? Ideal length is 30-60 minutes.
