If you would like to resolve your own conflicts and design your own solutions, then contact Sue Sloop, Coordinator of Mediation Services for Faculty and Staff. Mediation begins with the disputing parties agreeing to meet with two neutral facilitators (called "mediators") who guide them step-by-step through a problem-solving process that is voluntary and confidential. Mediation can help greatly to facilitate communication between you and your co-workers.

The benefits of mediation include a mutually satisfactory outcome, high ratio of compliance, customized agreements, practice in learning creative problem-solving procedures, and personal empowerment.
