Randy Compton, Principal, presently serves as a trainer and consultant for Restorative Solutions. His specialty is designing and implementing school-based restorative justice programs. He has a long history of working for children, youth and families, with a specialty working in the field of conflict resolution education. In 2003, he co-edited one of the leading books in the field of conflict resolution education, entitled Kids Working It Out: Stories and Strategies for Making Peace in Our Schools.
After graduating from the University of California at Santa Barbara, Randy began work for the Beyond War Foundation, acting as the lead organizer for the Boulder chapter. This work led him to attend the University of Colorado at Boulder where he received a master's degree in Sociology with an emphasis in Social Conflict. His culminating thesis, entitled “A Transpersonal View of Social Conflict,” sought to understand how conflict evolves in society and our psyches.
During graduate school, he volunteered for the City of Boulder's Community Mediation Service where he mediated and facilitated a wide variety of cases including landlord-tenant, parent-adolescent, and divorce and child custody cases. He also led workshops in correctional facilities with the Alternatives to Violence Project. Currently, he volunteers with the City of Lafayette and Broomfield facilitating restorative justice conferences.
He entered the field of conflict resolution education in its early stages back in 1985 helping to implement a peer mediation program, which became a complete success validated by two years of research, which showed decreased anti-social behaviors and increased problem-solving behaviors. In 1987, Randy joined forces with two other educators to found the Colorado School Mediation Project (now the School Mediation Center), one of the country's more influential organizations in the field... Under his direction as Executive Director, this organization helped schools and youth serving institutions implement conflict resolution, social and emotional learning, peer mediation and restorative justice programs.
During his time at the School Mediation Center, he coordinated the National Curriculum Integration Project, founded two major conferences, served on the Standards Committee for the Conflict Resolution Education Network, authored numerous articles, wrote and edited curricula and videos, and presented dozens of times at conferences throughout Colorado, the U.S., and Europe.
Randy also has extensive experience in the field of philanthropy, serving on the board of the Compton Foundation from 1993-2003. From 2002-2003, he acted as Board President during the foundation's transition from one generation to another. The foundation, along with its Family Advisory Board, provides grants in the fields of peace and security, environment, population, education, children, youth and families, and spirituality.
