Student Assistance provides mediation services in which a neutral mediator facilitates a dialogue between those in conflict. It is ultimately up to the parties involved to reach a mutually agreeable solution. If students are experiencing conflict with another student (or students) Student Assistance can help. Contact the Dean of Students Office to schedule an initial consultation.

Conflict coaching can be helpful to students facing a conflict they are unsure how to approach or manage. In conflict coaching, Student Assistance staff help students engage in and productively resolve conflict, working one-on-one with the student. The conflict can be with another student or even faculty, staff, family or community member. Conflict coaching is available to online students via phone.
