The Student Conflict Resolution Center works with students to resolve university-based problems and concerns. The services are free and confidential.
SCRC will assist you with any University issue. An ombudsman provides confidential, neutral and informal options. An advocate is available to assist students in formal grievance or disciplinary proceedings.
To the right is a list of some of the most common areas of concerns we hear from students. Also check out our DIY Resources for common University-based problems.

What Happens When I Call?
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, or any other service you may need. The Ombudsman may offer to assist you in resolving the situation within the University. The Ombudsman will ask for your permission before contacting anyone else. Just because you talk to an Ombudsman does not mean you have to do anything.
