“Gould” is the Martin Daniel Gould Center for Conflict Resolution, the heart of dispute resolution programs at Stanford University, including the Gould Negotiation and Mediation Program, underwritten by the Joseph B. Gould Foundation.

A historic landmark at Stanford, the Gould Center was remodeled in 1998 thanks to a generous donation from Joseph B. Gould. The center houses classes and meeting rooms, offices, and an expansive garden to provide an ideal forum for integrating theory and practice in conflict resolution.

The Gould ADR Research Initiative

The Gould ADR Research Initiative was created to promote academic scholarship on the theory and practice of alternative dispute resolution, and to explore ways to continuously improve the quality of instruction offered through the Gould Negotiation and Mediation Program. The Initiative complements the pedagogical mission of the Gould Center by supporting Stanford faculty in their efforts to develop high-quality, innovative research projects in the field of negotiation. The Initiative is directed by Senior Lecturer Janet Martinez. For further information, please contact Janet Martinez, the principal investigator.
