Diagnostic tool for managers: Conflict Climate Inventory

The Conflict Climate Inventory (CCI) is a diagnostic tool available to OSU departments and administrative units, administered by University Ombuds Office staff who are CCI-certified. To learn more about the CCI as well as other options for specifically addressing conflict climate, please contact the University Ombuds Office at (541) 737-4537.
