Office of Student Conflict Resolution

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.
