Office of Collaboration and Dispute Resolution
Welcome to the Minnesota State Office of Collaboration and Dispute Resolution. We assist government and citizens of Minnesota in using collaborative process and conflict resolution to find solutions to important public issues.
The best public solutions come from people working together on issues. We use structured, facilitated dialogue to help people examine and integrate diverse viewpoints and interests to build solutions that everyone can support.
Working with us can help you achieve sustainable solutions to public issues ranging from disputes over the placement of sound barriers on our highways to conflicts between development and environmental goals to establishing new statewide policy on social issues. Our neutrality and expertise and experience in leading successful projects within the state make us an effective and accessible state-level resource.
