Why choose conflict resolution at North Central College?
North Central is one of the first schools in the country to offer a minor in conflict resolution. This minor is part of the College’s one-of-a-kind Leadership, Ethics and Values (LEV) program and will make your résumé, grad program or law school application stand out from the pack. In class and out, you’ll master negotiation and interpersonal communication skills, explore the emerging field of alternative dispute, and much more. What you learn here will be immeasurably valuable regardless of your major or career path.
You can also:
- Gain valuable experience by interning in North Central’s Dispute Resolution Center, which provides mediation and consulting services to students and the community through its Peer Mediation Program.
- Apply for membership to the national Blue Key Honor Society, which recognizes exemplary leadership.
- Develop your personal and professional leadership skills through LEV’s iLead program.
- Apply for a Richter Independent Study Fellowship grant to fund original research anywhere in the world, or a Mironda K. Heston Scholarship to fund human rights and service projects.

- Take advantage of numerous leadership opportunities through student government and other campus organizations, or as a student mentor with Leadership Jump Start.
- Complete a concentration in leadership or ethics if you can’t accommodate the requirements necessary to complete a minor.
- Pursue a five-year bachelor’s/master’s program in leadership studies or consider the College’s master of leadership studies degree after graduation.
