IRJRD and Weatherford College begin work together in advancing the Restorative Movement in Texas. In addition to providing an office, the College is also giving access to classroom space for presentations and training sessions in Restorative Discipline and Restorative Justice by IRJRD. Weatherford College, the oldest continuing educational institution west of the Mississippi River, was established in 1869. Its District includes five Texas counties – Parker, Palo Pinto, Hood, Jack and Wise. The college faculty and staff, administration and board of directors are keen on developing and maintaining educational programs, student support services and activities that are attuned with the needs of the greater community they serve.
Training sessions and workshops by IRJRD at Weatherford College are set to begin in March 2019. The Institute for Restorative Justice and Restorative Dialogue is grateful to Weatherford College Administration for the opportunity to be a presence on the Weatherford campus and to provide presentations and training sessions in restorative justice here at home.
