Facilitation

What is facilitation?

Facilitation is a process in which a neutral third party with no decision making authority intervenes to help group reach a common decision or goal.

What is appropriate for facilitation?

Almost any group meeting is appropriate for facilitation. Commonly facilitators are utilized in settings in which divergent ideas exist, situations where everyone in the group would like to contribute to the discussion, or groups that tend to lose focus.

How do I arrange for a facilitation or get more information?

You may schedule a facilitation session or place further inquiries to the Center for Dispute Resolution at the University of Maryland School of Law at 410-706-3836 or by sending an email to
