Conflict is a natural result of transition, growth, changing environments, and personality differences. Conflict Resolution Services are designed to help students, faculty, and staff resolve or manage disputes with the assistance of a neutral party. We can help assess the issue, diffuse the hostility, and problem solve. Additionally, our staff offer workshops and other training to members of the University community.

Our staff is specially trained in group dynamics, conflict resolution, and interpersonal communication. We provide consultation to students, staff, and faculty groups.

Students can generally be seen within a week of their initial request and under emergency circumstances, can often be seen during the same day. It is important to us that students who seek our services do so out of their own choice, so we require all students to make their own appointments.
