Applicants with significant experience leading community based conflict management organizations, nonprofits, public sector agencies, or those with significant links in or reputations for leadership in the practice community may also be considered for a non-tenure track Executive-in-Residence appointment.  The position is contingent upon final budget approval.

The Negotiations and Conflict Management (CNCM) program is seeking an individual that can contribute practice-oriented expertise to the graduate program.
