Psychology lecturer Donald Saposnek recently served as a national delegate
to a meeting in Washington, D.C., about conflict resolution. Dubbed the
"Knowledge Gaps Summit," the meeting brought together national
scholars on theory and research in the field of conflict resolution. Participants
identified knowledge gaps and developed research and social policy agendas
for the future.
The summit was jointly organized by individuals with the Conflict Resolution
Program of the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, the Indiana Conflict
Resolution Institute at the Indiana University School of Public and Environmental
Affairs, and Conflict Resolution Quarterly.
Francisco Hernandez, vice chancellor for Student Affairs, has been invited

The UCSC Inn and Conference Center will be knows as the University Inn
and Conference Center beginning July 1. A new sign in front of the hotel
will reflect the change.
"The change of name comes from input our guests have given us over
the course of the last couple of years. It is unclear from the name that
hotel rooms are available to the general public," said Alma Sifuentes,
director of Residential and Dining Services. "The change in name
is a slight one," she said, "but we feel that it will make a
significant difference in welcoming guests not affiliated with the university,
particularly during summer months."
