The Center's objective is to create, collect and promote research on the boundaries of these disciplines. We plan achieve this objective through a number of initiatives. (1) Sponsoring a regular seminar series, bringing in leading scholars who appeal to faculty in multiple disciplines. Inviting a yearly keynote speaker of general interest, typical negotiation practitioner, to discuss real-world experiences. (2) Collecting and disseminating original educational material to be used in negotiation classes (negotiation "simulations" or cases). (3) Offering executive education sessions, complete courses and consulting services in negotiation, mediation and related topics to bridge theory a practice. (4) Hosting occasional conferences and other gatherings of scholars from multiple disciplines with relate research interest. Our ultimate goal is to bring together scholars from different disciplines who study related topic and to use the collected insights to inform negotiation practice through education and outreach.
