After Referral is Made: The Mediation Process
The office will notify the student(s) involved and request their attendance at a mediation. Since mediation is voluntary, all parties must be willing to consider a mediation in order for the process to continue.
The mediation will occur in a neutral location on campus. The mediator will advise the parties of the mediation rules and procedures beforehand. Regardless of whether an agreement is reached, the office will follow up approximately six weeks later to ask for feedback on the mediation session and the agreement, if applicable. The office must approve all agreements to ensure compliance with university policies.
