Event Details

You’re invited to join SOCHE for another virtual lunch and learn, entitled “The Impact of Restorative Justice on Higher Education,” on Wednesday, March 22, beginning at 12 p.m. ET. The session, which also is part of SOCHE’s 2023 Leadership Development Program, will be presented by Jordyn Baker, Human Resources Generalist at University Corporation of Atmospheric Researchers, and Jessica Hoelting, Associate Director of Community Standards & Civility at the University of Dayton.

Have you been looking for a way to engage student, faculty, or staff that provides a safe space for parties to engage in a dialogue regarding the impact and harm of their experience? Restorative Justice in the realm of higher education is gaining traction but what does it look like in practice? We hope to answer these questions for you and discover more ways Restorative practices can be utilized in a variety of settings. The Impact of Restorative Justice will briefly define Restorative Justice, discuss various forms of RJ, the factors that influence the format utilized and demonstrate these formats in action. We’ll end by sharing student testimonials on their journey and experience with RJ.

At the conclusion of this presentation, attendees will have an understanding of the:

  • Purpose, definition, and philosophy of Restorative Justice
  • Various RJ practices and what these formats look like in practice
  • Impact these practices have on parties
  • Ways to begin initial discussions and implementation of RJ within your communities

Councils & Committees

SOCHE is dedicated to advancing higher education through active collaboration, resource and knowledge building, and effective professional development programs. To accomplish this, SOCHE administers 16 active Councils and Committees. The purpose of a SOCHE Council or Committee is to provide an opportunity for representatives from higher education to be a resource for one another, share information and best practices, identify common challenges, and, ultimately, broaden awareness of the resources, services, and activities in higher education. SOCHE is also dependent upon the Councils and Committees for substantial input on annual professional development programs.
