Who We Are & What We Do

The Center for Public Policy Dispute Resolution was created in 1993 to specifically promote the appropriate use of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) in Texas government.

The use of ADR processes by the courts and federal government has been widely celebrated as a more efficient and cost effective method of conflict resolution. The Center is located within the University of Texas so as to provide a neutral, non-political site for assisting Texas state and local governments with ADR.
