The students that come to the IIRP Graduate School are:

  • motivated by a sense of justice to create a more fair and participatory world.
  • determined to learn how to manage conflict and foster respect and empathy.
  • eager to engage individuals to have voice in decisions that impact them.
  • hungry to foster responsibility and learn how to hold people accountable for their actions.


In the past seven years, graduate enrollment has grown rapidly from 95 students to 277. Our growth reflects the widening recognition of the effectiveness and applicability of restorative practices in a wide range of areas, from education and justice to social work and organizational leadership.
