New Director Heads OSCR

The new Director of DSA’s Office of Student Conflict Resolution (OSCR) got interested in conflict during his undergraduate years. "I was talking to a fraternity brother who was pretty upset about someone he assumed was flirting with his ex-girlfriend. This big, macho guy stormed out of the room angrily and said 'I'm going to go talk to that guy' and within ten minutes the whole thing was resolved; I was amazed!" At that moment Jay realized he had been wasting unnecessary emotional energy by avoiding difficult conversations.
