Level-Up™

Conflict Management and Resolution Program.

Level-Up’s 10 interdisciplinary modules bring learning to life by providing college students training in conflict resolution. Peace Peddlers’ Level-Up™ empowers students with the knowledge and skills to manage conflict and negotiate for their needs.

Why Level-Up™?

The first year experience for many college students is fraught with personal adjustments and new expectations. Students are navigating new relationships, learning from and experiencing new cultures and students from different socioeconomic backgrounds, and developing relationships with students from different faith backgrounds. They are managing new sexual and relationship mores as well as possibly learning to live without the direct guidance of their parents for the first time. As such, dealing with conflict and making efforts to negotiate for their needs are constants. This is why Level-Up™ exists. Students, colleges and universities benefit from the Level-Up™ program, which allows students an online opportunity to learn about and practice understanding and resolving conflict.

Program Description

Level-Up™ consists of online training for incoming college and university students (including transfer and commuter students). The online program includes readings and study questions, online discussion questions, interactive activities, videos, discussion board opportunities, virtual discussions, and lectures from conflict resolution professionals knowledgeable about the college and university environment. Level-Up™ is designed for students to work collaboratively through each of the online modules.
