Shocker Circle Keepers are WSU staff, students, and faculty who have volunteered hours from their usual work duties for extensive training in Circle Process with representatives from KIPCOR (Kansas Institute for Peace and Conflict Resolution). Keepers come together from departments across WSU to share the powerful communication and connection possible through the Circle Process.
During the Circle process, the Keeper is not the facilitator or leader of discussion. Rather, they are just as much a participant in the Circle as everyone else, and are present to help hold the Circle and bring new participants up to speed on the process.
Becoming a Circle Keeper
Shocker Circle Keepers have been trained through KIPCOR, and have undergone annual refresher trainings since 2019. If you would like the opportunity to join the next training program for Circle Keeping, send an email to the Shocker Circles team. The next training dates are not scheduled, so think of this as more of a wait-list than a scheduling feature for now!
