"Out of clutter, find simplicity.
From discord, find harmony.
In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity."
-- Albert Einstein
The UTPCR mission is to change the way people think about and handle conflict in order to positively affect individuals, our communities, our nation and our world. Communication is fundamental to our approach. Communication can be the source of conflict or the path through conflict. One path is through such practices as mediation, negotiation and wise communication. Another path is through shared activities like music and sports.
The UTPCR programs place a special emphasis on contemporary culture and its many aspects of everyday living - the arts, business, race, healthcare, education, journalism, religion, sports, music, family and personal relationships. We invite you to be part of the conversation and help transform today's conflict into tomorrow's calm.
Since launching in 1998, the University of Texas Project on Conflict Resolution has been an innovator in addressing interpersonal, organizational, and societal conflict through communication that enhances collaboration and relationships. The UTPCR draws upon the expertise of the entire University of Texas system to provide services, events, academic and research opportunities, and public impact and participation programs.
