Restorative Justice (RJ) processes address incidents of harm by actively engaging impacted parties in collaborative efforts to obtain resolutions which foster the well-being of all involved.

Our program provides an opportunity for students to participate in restorative justice when they have engaged in behavior that violates the Conduct Code, laws, and/or community standards.

Through facilitated dialogue, participants share their thoughts, feelings, and experiences about the incident.  They also identify impacted parties, the negative impacts that have occurred, and collectively agree on steps to move forward.

What previous participants have shared:

"RJ was instrumental in saving my career and helping repair the damage done to the community." 

"I felt like I was listened to and it was good to hear the other side's perspective." 

"Very thankful our school has such a program."

"It was excellent to get to speak to all parties involved and get their perspective.

COVID-19 Update: Restorative Justice (RJ) processes are currently being held virtually including intake, pre-conferencing, and conferencing. More information about our virtual platform can be found to the right in this slide presentation.

Volunteers Needed!

We are seeking CSU students, staff and faculty to participate as Community Members in CSU’s RJ processes.  Community Members represent the voice of the CSU community speak to the impacts of offenses on CSU and the larger community.
