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.
Experiencing conflict is healthy but can also be confusing or stressful. Students engaged in conflict resolution may wish to have an advisor, attorney, parents, or others provide support. The Statement outlines the role third-parties have in the conflict resolution process. Remember, OSCR is here to help! OSCR has trained staff to assist members of the Michigan community with conflict resolution.
