Disputes, conflicts, and complaints are a normal part of university life. Mediation allows parties in a dispute to control the outcomes of their conflicts. Mediation can work well for people who want to avoid the stress and inflexibility of more formal procedures or for people who need to continue working relationships. Many kinds of conflicts can be resolved successfully through mediation.
Mediation can help resolve a range of issues including disrespectful treatment, noise complaints, harassment, discrimination, and property damage. Disputes occur throughout the university community and between a variety of parties; for example, between students and between roommates.
