Conflict Resolution

St. Cloud State offers credit and non-credit (professional development) training opportunities for St. Cloud State students and community members. 

We offer two courses/training's in mediation at St. Cloud State University.  

  • Civil mediation is mediation for disputes such as insurance claims, disagreements between business partners, neighbors, and landlords/tenants, etc.
  • Family mediation is mediation for divorcing couples, parenting time or any other family related matters. Covers family law; psychological issues of adults and children in divorce; domestic abuse; financial and property issues, and mediator ethics in family cases. 

Both of these courses are certified by the Minnesota supreme court as qualifying individuals for the corresponding rosters.

Both courses can be taken for CEU hours or as a credit based course. Both may also be taken at the graduate level for someone who is pursuing a master’s degree.
