The Center for Business and International Negotiation (CBIN) is a focal point for engagement in campus, community, and international conflict mediation and negotiation activities as alternative forms of dispute resolution.
Specifically, the Center provides dispute mediation and negotiation training for campus students, community residents and global communities. Campus-students who excel in the training will advance their skill levels through participation in competitive mediation tournaments, local internships and global community mediation projects; supported by scholarship, stipends and travel grants.
The goals of the Center are well tied to the overall University and College strategic initiatives relating to student involvement and engagement, faculty development and the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) practitioner/research role expansion, globalization endeavors as well as understanding of diversity.
The Center for Business and International Negotiation introduces students and business people to strategies for resolving conflict to support and promote conflict resolution locally, nationally, and globally.
