Office of Student Conflict Resolution

  • Do you want to resolve a conflict with a UM student without getting that student “in trouble” with the University or the law?
  • Do you want to be empowered with complete control and final say over any outcome or resolution to your conflict? 
  • Do you want to be able to define the parameters for how to address your conflict while utilizing conflict specialists?
  • Do you want to talk about / explore the “real” issues, and not just the surface ones?

If so, then Adaptable Conflict Resolution may meet your needs.  Services are free, confidential, and completely voluntary every step of the way.  They can be accessed for a variety of types of conflict, including roommate disputes, disagreements within or between student organizations, and other types of interpersonal conflict.

OSCR offers a spectrum of services that may be tailored to meet individual circumstances. Services may be accessed by meeting with a Resolution Coordinator. ACR pathways may be accessed without submitting written documentation.
