Civility lunch, Feb. 20
Posted February 14, 2001; 05:24 p.m.
A brown bag lunch on "Civility, Community and Problem Solving" will be presented by the Ombuds Office Tuesday, Feb. 20, in 101 McCosh Health Center. There will be two sessions: from noon to 1 p.m., and from 1 to 2 p.m.
"Princeton is a large and complex community, and as such its members are faced with many challenges in their interactions with one another," said Anu Rao, ombuds officer. "However, Princeton is also a community committed to the values of diversity and dignity, and its members are expected to resolve their differences in a respectful manner."
The purpose of the program is to acquaint the community with the resources and information available through the Ombuds Office for informal problem-solving. The program will include a discussion of informal dispute-resolution techniques and a mediation role-play presented by University mediators and Ombuds Office staff.
The program is sponsored by the Work/Life Task Force of the President's Standing Committee on the Status of Women. More information is available on the Ombuds Office Web site at ombuds .
