The Office of Community Standards provide students an avenue to address and resolve interpersonal conflicts which may include, but is not limited to, conflicts between members of a student organization, roommates, students with a class or study group, faculty/staff and students, and friends.
The Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) Option is available to students who have a desire to handle their conflicts outside the Community Standards process when appropriate at the discretion of the Conduct Officer.
Mediation is a non-adversarial form of Alternative Dispute Resolution. It is a voluntary, informal problem solving process in which an impartial person - the mediator - acts as a facilitator to help parties settle their dispute. The people in conflict solve their own problems with the assistance of the mediator.
