Tips for Resolving Academic Conflicts

Academic conflicts can be stressful and overwhelming for U of M students. It can be difficult to get these conflicts resolved independently while trying to keep up on reading, writing papers, and studying for exams. Fortunately, there are resources provided by OSCR that can help you resolve academic conflicts in a peaceful and socially just way. Some academic conflicts involve grade disputes with a professor. These can be challenging to experience on your own. OSCR does not handle grade disputes- these are handled by the Office of the Ombuds.
