Ran Kuttner is an Associate Professor of Negotiation and Dispute Resolution at the Werner Institute, Creighton University. Ran completed his Ph.D. at the Program on Conflict Management and Negotiation at Bar-Ilan University, Israel. He received his MA in philosophy of education and his BA in philosophy, both cum laude, from Tel-Aviv University, Israel. Preceding his arrival at Creighton, Ran was a Visiting Researcher and an Associate at the Program on Negotiation at Harvard Law School, where, among other research projects, he helped redesign and teach the Harvard mediation course, a joint course for law and MBA students.

In his research and teaching, Ran explores relational aspects of conflict engagement and aims to improve both the philosophical understanding and the practice of transformation of adversity into dialogue through mediation, negotiation and facilitation. His current research involves the integration of Leadership scholarship and Conflict Resolution scholarship. He teaches graduate level courses in Mediation, Negotiation, Group Facilitation, Dialogue, Dispute System Design, and Leadership.

Ran is a certified mediator, teacher and trainer in Israel, where he also designed a mediation certification program and has taught numerous mediation courses for Israeli educators, companies and the general public, as well as in graduate-level academic programs. 

Ran recently returned to Israel after seven years in the US. While currently maintaining his position as an Associate Professor at Creighton University, teaching a combination of online and intensive-schedule courses, he also teaches courses on Mediation and Cross Culture Negotiation/Conflict Management at the Program in Conflict Resolution and Mediation at Tel Aviv University.
