  • The Center provides facilitation services to government agencies, community organizations, and non-profit organizations. Facilitation refers to processes in which neutral third parties coordinate and conduct multi-party meetings designed to resolve a conflict, create a collaborative policy, or simply share information and perspectives.

    Facilitation is helpful when there are many parties to a conflict who represent varying perspectives and yet are interconnected. Facilitation is used to resolve disputes involving many issues including:

    • government regulations,

    • environmental disputes,

    • community services,

    • zoning and land use, and

    • inter and intra-organizational disagreements.
