Giving Opportunities

Students navigating college in today’s global and national environment are challenged with finding tools, strategies, and language to bridge divides in order to solve our most pressing problems.  The Office of Student Conflict Resolution (OSCR) is uniquely situated to assist our students in learning critical skills for engaging in difficult dialogues and transforming conflict.

Serving as a Resolution Officer

Judicious and thoughtful faculty and staff members are relied on to serve as Resolution Officers (ROs) in the formal conflict resolution process administered by OSCR. Depending on the type of arbitration selected, ROs may determine responsibility themselves or assist Student Panelists during the hearing. ROs must participate in one weekend training during the fall semester where they learn more about how OSCR administers the Statement of Student Rights and Responsibilities


Serving as a Student Resolution Panelist

Each year, sixty students are appointed to serve as Student Panelists in the formal conflict resolution process administered by OSCR. Serving as a Student Panelist is by invitation only, through random selection each winter. Those who accept the invitation participate in one weekend training during the fall semester to learn about the resolution process specified in the Statement of Student Rights and Responsibilities and hear from guest speakers from SAPAC, Student Legal Services, and many other corners of the University community.
