The class is set for 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. each Friday from Sept. 16 through Nov. 18 on Tarleton’s Stephenville campus. Cost is $599 for community members. There is no charge for Tarleton faculty and staff, but all participants must purchase a $28 textbook. The course covers the phases of the mediation process and acquaints participants with the role of the mediator as an impartial third party, with a special emphasis on ethics. More information here.
