New UCSC residence hall teaches nonviolent communication – Santa Cruz Sentinel

SANTA CRUZ —This term at the University of California-Santa Cruz, a brand new theme was created for a floor in one of the residence halls that focuses on training in nonviolent communication. The 24 students in the program are all living on one floor in the Ohlone House at College Ten, which has a social justice theme.

 

“The training is about trying to understand, from other people’s perspective, where they are coming from,” King said. “It’s learning to get what motivates other people, to get that we are all coming from a place where we are trying to meet some vital human need.”
