Gallagher Dahl, Meghan; Meagher, Peter; Vander Velde, Stacy
Journal of Student Affairs Research and Practice, v51 n4 p364-379 Nov 2014
A restorative justice program (RJP) was developed at a large university in the housing student conduct office. Students accused of misconduct who participated in a restorative justice (RJ) conference completed surveys regarding their motivations and perceived outcomes. Results showed that students who were motivated to make reparations to others had the best outcomes, yet these students were often additionally focused on personal motivators. Students who felt pressured to participate had fewer benefits. Implications and limitations are discussed
