C-DRUM Receives Baltimore City Proclamation on Conflict Resolution Day

The Center for Dispute Resolution (C-DRUM), part of the University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law, was awarded a proclamation on October 17 honoring its contributions to promoting conflict resolution for students and staff in schools across Maryland.

The proclamation, issued by the Chief Executive Officer of the Baltimore City Public School System, was a part of Conflict Resolution Day activities. The Association for Conflict Resolution sponsors activities around the country on Conflict Resolution Day, the third Thursday in October.

Following the proclamation, C-DRUM conducted a training session for Baltimore City School Police Officers on the use of restorative practices in schools.

"We are honored to receive this proclamation," said Toby Guerin, JD, C-DRUM's managing director and a clinical law instructor at the UM Carey School of Law. "Teaching students, school police and school administrators conflict resolution and mediation skills helps to empower everyone involved and can transform the climate of the school."

During October, law students in the  Mediation Clinic will provide a variety of conflict resolution activities in schools including presentations to students, circle processes, and peer mediations.

The following schools in Maryland have registered with C-DRUM to conduct their own conflict resolution month activities:

  • Heather Hills Elementary School
  • Duval High School
  • Digital Harbor High School
  • Homewood Center
  • Dr. Henry A. Wise High School
  • Govans Elementary School.

Since its inception in 2002, C-DRUM has worked with more than 50 Baltimore City schools. It also provides trainings to government agencies, businesses and non-profits.
