Conflict Resolution

Foundations of Civil Discussion

Conflict can be a normal part of living in community. The University expects its members first to employ honest, direct and civil dialogue as a means of resolving conflict. If, despite this effort, conflict persists, resources exist to help parties resolve disputes.

First- and second-year students experiencing roommate conflicts ordinarily request help from their residential college adviser (RCA). When additional assistance is required, students may seek the help of their director of student life.


Please report any conflict involving violence, the threat of violence or other breaches of conduct regulations.

The Ombuds Office also offers conflict resolution assistance to students, faculty and staff.
