In the past five years the Institute for Conflict Management has grown into the premier resource for academic study and practical guidance for community organizations, governmental entities, churches, corporations and individuals. Because of the applicability of this study to so many areas, our alumni and students talk of transformative journeys, uncovering new directions for themselves professionally and many times, personally.
Growing out of the internationally recognized dispute resolution work of Professor Randy Lowry, Lipscomb University President, the ICM provides degrees, certificates, seminars and research dedicated to the advancement of conflict management disciplines.
The ICM’s masters degree, certificate, research and conference offerings impact most areas of commerce and education, model evolving best practices in conflict management, and instruct participants in more cost effective and efficient solutions for unresolved conflict. Academic offerings are available in flexible, weekend schedules on campus as well as through online courses.
