Last spring, the leadership in Arts, Sciences & Engineering introduced a restorative practices initiative to help members of the University community move forward after allegations of sexual misconduct challenged one of its most respected departments and affected the institution as a whole. Led by AS&E dean for diversity Beth Olivares, the initiative includes restorative practices workshops and training by consultants Toni McMurphy and Duke Fisher, as well as important insights from associate professor of anthropology Kristin Doughty, a restorative justice scholar and director of the University of Rochester’s Susan B. Anthony Institute. Beth Olivares, Toni McMurphy, Duke Fisher and Kristin Doughty join us to talk more about restorative practices and what they hope to accomplish with the ongoing initiative.
