The CUNY Dispute Resolution Center  is a hub of conflict resolution events, programs, and resources based at John Jay College in New York City.  It was started in 1993 with Hewlett Foundation funding. The CUNY DRC conducts research, provides technical assistance, designs innovative programming initiatives, develops training programs, organizes conferences, and maintains a popular listserv for those interested in dispute resolution. The CUNY DRC works very closely with a wide range of organizations in the NYC metropolitan area to advance the field.
