While academic freedom enables members of the academic community to pursue their work, it can also become a source of conflict between faculty members as well as individual faculty and administrators. In most instances, conflict in an academic environment requires only a clear system in which to pursue resolution. The creation of such a conflict management system will ideally correct misunderstandings before they lead to greater problems, and as such, it is of crucial importance to every higher education institution.

Work and Peace in Academe assesses the nature of conflict in academic environments and describes practical ways to prevent and resolve unproductive disputes. Through stories, vignettes, and case studies, the author emphasizes the importance of integrity and trust to the ongoing success of any approach to managing conflict. To help readers develop effective conflict resolution systems, the book includes

  • A framework for understanding conflict in an academic environment
  • Suggested methods of conflict resolution
  • Identification of key players and resources involved in effective systems
  • Ideas for integrating dispute prevention, resolution, and management
  • Best practices in conflict management

Written for administrators and faculty leaders, Work and Peace in Academe will guide readers in developing a systematic approach to dispute resolution that preserves an institution's culture, history, procedures, and practices.
