I appreciated how willing professors are to work with students…It’s because of that willingness and encouragement that make Bethel a top tier college.

Conflict is a natural part of human interaction, at home and at work.

Managing conflict in healthy and productive ways is a valuable skill almost anyone can learn.

Workplaces, the criminal justice system, the government, public agencies, health-care institutions, churches and schools all need effective, long-term strategies for resolving conflict. Not surprisingly, conflict resolution credentials impress employers.

The Kansas Institute for Peace and Conflict Resolution (KIPCOR) at Bethel College offers the Conflict Resolution Certificate. This skills-based certificate emphasizes active, hands-on and experiential learning that allows you to apply theory to practice.

Most courses are intensives—taught all day over 2–4 full days, or half-days for 2 weeks, to allow you to complete certificate courses without weekly interruptions of busy schedules.
