The Student Conflict Resolution Center works with students to resolve university-based problems and concerns. The services are free and confidential.
SCRC will help you resolve any campus-based problem or concern to the best of our ability. To the right is a list of some of the most common areas of concerns we hear from students. Also check out our DIY materials for do-it-yourself tools to help you handle University-based problems.
SCRC is a confidential resource. When you contact us, there is no information “entered” about you in any system. We do not contact anyone without your permission. The only time we would break confidentiality is if we thought someone was in danger based on information we received. We will not testify against a student in any formal proceeding, nor will we testify for a student.
The Ombudsman is not a representative of any party. We are here help facilitate an agreement by the parties.
SCRC maintains, by a charter, its independence from the University. The University does not interfere with case work. The Student Conflict Resolution Center is funded primarily from student fees.
The Ombudsman does not participate in any formal proceeding in any way –the Ombudsman will not participate in grievance hearings, student discipline appeals, or litigation. It is important to note that the Student Conflict Resolution Center and Office of the Ombudsman is not an office of notice within the University community.
You will work with an Ombudsman for an initial consultation. This may be done over the telephone or in person. We will assist you in identifying and weighing options, finding resources on policy, or any other service you may need. The Ombudsman may offer to assist you in resolving the situation within the University. The Ombudsman will not make contacts with anyone without your permission. Just because you talk to an Ombudsman, does not mean you have to do anything.
