Conflict Resolution

The Office of the Dean of Students provides Conflict Resolution, Mediation, and Conflict Coaching to support Indiana University-Purdue University Fort Wayne’s commitment to creating an environment that enhances learning by recognizing the inherent worth of all individuals, the value of common respect and civility, and a commitment to integrity and ethical conduct. 

Types of Conflict That May Require Mediation and/or Individual Conflict Coaching:

  • Roommate Conflicts
  • Co-worker Disputes
  • Student/Student Issues
  • Student/Staff Issues
  • Student/Faculty Issues

Services Available:

  • Confidential mediation services in which a trained neutral third party facilitates a dialogue between those in conflict. The mediator will provide a process where all parties may reach a mutually agreeable solution. 
  • Individual conflict coaching where the mediator will provide advice and resources to assist you with resolving conflict.

Make an appointment to discuss your conflict issue and your best options for resolution.
