how to have healthy conflict

Facilitator: Kerry Ann Rockquemore, PhD


Do you often feel drained by departmental drama?


Do feel unclear how to handle conflicts that arise in your department?


Are you unsure when, where, and how to manage conflict with people who will be voting on your tenure?


Academics are notoriously conflict avoidant and the inability to manage conflict can result in negative physical, emotional, and relational consequences for tenure-track faculty. So why not learn early in your career to master the SKILL of healthy conflict so that you can effectively manage conflicts as they arise and avoid carrying around all of the negative energy, anger and resentment in your mind and body.


In this workshop, you will learn:

  • How conflict-management is an essential part of thriving in the Academy.
  • How to decide when to push-back and when to pull back in the face of conflict.
  • The difference between healthy and unhealthy conflict.
  • How to get clear about the role that power plays in resolving departmental conflicts.
  • Ten tips for engaging in healthy conflict.

Kerry Ann Rockquemore, PhD is President and CEO of the National Center for Faculty Development & Diversity. Her scholarship has focused on interracial families, biracial identity, and the politics of racial categorization. She is author of two important books:Beyond Black and Raising Biracial Children, as well as over two dozen articles and book chapters on multiracial youth. After Dr. Rockquemore became a tenured professor, her focus shifted to improving conditions for pre-tenure faculty by creating supportive communities for writing productivity and work/life balance. Her award-winning work with under-represented faculty led to the publication of her most recent book: The Black Academic's Guide to Winning Tenure Without Losing Your Soul. Dr. Rockquemore provides workshops for faculty at colleges across the U.S., writes an advice column for Inside Higher Ed, and works with a select group of faculty each semester in the Faculty Success Program.
