Carolyn Penny


A practitioner of negotiation since growing up with 3 brothers, I have been a mediator for over 25 years. At UC Davis, I am honored to support dialogue and delberation for all campus stakeholders as a means to promote understanding, civility and freedom of expression. Integrating over 25 years of experience as a mediator and facilitator of public policy dispute resolution, I work at the juncture of conflict resolution, public engagement, and group dynamics to design and deliver initiatives to resolve issues and build community.
