Office of Collaboration and Dispute Resolution
Bureau of Mediation Services
The Office of Collaboration and Dispute Resolution (OCDR) is a unique statewide resource that helps resolve difficult public issues. We do this through our work on individual projects and through training and capacity building so that all of Minnesota has access to new and innovative methods to work through today's challenging issues.
We accomplish this through the use of innovative collaborative processes because we believe the best public solutions come from people working together on issues. We use structured, facilitated dialogue to help people examine diverse viewpoints and interested so they can build the consensus that leads to better solutions. Our neutrality, expertise, and experience in leading successful projects across the state make OCDR an effective state-level resource.
