Since 2018, the American Bar Association’s Section of Dispute Resolution has recognized the second Thursday of October as a day to raise awareness about the ombuds profession. This year, Ombuds Day, which is celebrated on October 14, has the theme “Ombuds: Exploring Options to Resolve Conflict Together.”
To mark Ombuds Day, UNLV’s Ombuds Office, in cooperation with the Faculty Center, is hosting an interactive role-play exercise at the Faculty Center.
Prior to the 75-minute session, registrants will complete an online survey instrument that will provide insight into their own conflict style. With this knowledge in hand, participants will explore the impact that different styles can exacerbate and de-escalate conflict by taking part in two role-play sessions.
There will be two sessions held at the Faculty Center (BEH 235). One begins at 10:00 a.m. and runs until 11:15 a.m., and the other starts at 2:30 p.m. and ends at 3:45 pm. You can select which session you will attend when you register.
To register, please fill out the form.
