Student Organizations

Conflict is inevitable in groups. Students experience it with roommates, in families, and in student organizations.

The UC San Diego Principles of Community are core values of the university and the Center for Student Involvement. As student organization leaders, you have a tremendous opportunity to build and shape communities as places of belonging on campus. Communication skills are the building blocks for creating thriving and inclusive groups.

Principal members of all student organizations at UC San Diego—sororities/fraternities, volunteer clubs, and other groups—are required to take the "The Art of Inclusive Communication," a three-hour workshop developed by the National Conflict Resolution Center.

This workshop will use everyday situations on and off campus to explore challenges and strategies for communicating and connecting in diverse groups. Student organization leaders will ...

  • learn and practice key communication techniques
  • focus on inclusive communication skill building
  • understand and practice conflict resolution
  • ... all in a fun and interactive way!
