Werner Institute

building a bridge between conflict resolution and the issues facing us.

Werner Institute

The mission of the Werner Institute is to be a leading center for the study and advancement of conflict resolution with a focus on preparing the next generation of practitioners and scholars to engage differences and resolve disputes effectively, efficiently, and humanely. A valuable addition to Creighton University’s rich academic landscape, the Institute helps those in business, government, health care, and communities manage disputes, reduce costs of conflict, and gain from collaboration. Consistent with Creighton’s mission, the Werner Institute seeks to educate men and women who are not only proficient in conflict resolution but who are enlivened with a spirit of service and emboldened to create a more just world.

The Werner Institute was established in 2005, thanks to a generous gift from the family of Creighton University alumna Gail Werner-Robertson.
