Mediation Services

Creating an accepting and supportive community is as important to us as academic excellence. We are committed to addressing workplace disputes in a fair and respectful manner. Confidential mediation services with a third party are available to increase communication and understanding and create options for resolution.

In addition to New Department Head Orientation, we have ongoing events, workshops and lecture series to provide opportunities for expression, exploration and camaraderie.
