Mediation Service

Mediation is a voluntary and confidential process in which a neutral third party helps disputing parties work through and resolve problems.

Mediation is designed to:

  • Offer structured professional assistance in discussions about tough issues
  • Provide a safe haven with low risk to the parties
  • Promote individual responsibility for decision making and problem resolution
  • Foster mutual respect and understanding of individual differences
  • Enhance future work relationships
  • Achieve results that bring parties closer together

Mediation is not available for resolving disputes related to promotion and tenure, discrimination, sexual harassment, serious misconduct/criminal activity, discharge, or issues governed by federal or state law.
