Student Organization & Conflict Awareness Training (SOCIA)

Student organization training requirements for the 2017-2018 academic year include Student Organization Conflict & Identity Awareness Training (SOCIA). SDSU SOCIA Training is offered in collaboration with the National Conflict Resolution Center, an organization that promotes collaborative dispute resolution and conflict management to individuals, organizations and society.

Trainers offer a wealth of applicable knowledge and information to leaders on how to sucessfully engage with different conflict roles.  Additionally, students learn valuable aspects of identity awareness which helps them become effective leaders as well as diverse individuals.  SOCIA trainings as a whole, can be seen as a leadership and personal enhancement seminar.   

For registration information, please visit the Student Organization Website.


Student Life & Leadership promotes student engagement, development, and success. We provide a balanced University experience for our diverse community through teaching, advising, and programming.
