The Office of the Provost is home to the following conflict resolution and advocacy resources for our academic community:

  • Consultation: Seek guidance on dispute resolution and Institute policies and procedures.
  • Mediation: Engage with a trained facilitator to informally resolve disputes between parties.
  • Training: Request a workshop on how to productively navigate conflict and resolution.
  • Coaching: Collaborate with a thought partner to advance your personal and professional goals. 

Learn more about these four areas of support on our resources page. 


Each of us has a duty to listen actively, speak up, and be responsive when others speak up. We live our values when we promptly report concerns, provide feedback, admit mistakes, and ask questions. If you see something that does not look or feel right, report the concern to one of the following:
