Pre-Convention Workshop #10: Restorative Justice

Restorative justice is commonly defined as a “process to involve, to the extent possible, those who have a stake in a specific offense and to collectively identify and address harms, needs, and obligations, in order to heal and put things as right as possible” (Zehr 2002). Restorative justice on college campuses includes a variety of practices, including prevention circles, response conferences, and reintegration circles, designed to empower harmed parties and strengthen offenders’ social ties and accountability to the community.  In this workshop, we will share the philosophy of RJ, evidence of its effectiveness on college campuses, and explore its application to a variety of issues including bias incidents, sexual misconduct, binge drinking, and academic dishonesty. We will also look at models of implementation and practice and have the opportunity to experience both circle practice and RJ conferencing.
