Faculty Mediators

The mediators are volunteer faculty members who have completed 40 hours of rigorous mediation skills training provided by the National Conflict Resolution Center and passed a series of performance-based simulations. In addition, they are expected to regularly participate in educational seminars that enhance their skills and knowledge of the mediation process.

During the mediation process, the mediator does not judge the validity of any party’s position, does not take sides, and does not decide how a conflict should be resolved. The mediator’s role is simply to facilitate communication among the parties through a structured process and assist them in reaching a mutually acceptable resolution.
