Mediation@MIT
Mediation@MIT offers confidential consultations about difficult conversations, difficult people, or ways to handle a dispute or conflict. The mediators are peers – members of the MIT community, trained as neutral facilitators to help the parties in a conflict to work together on the issues that are important to them. Through a completely voluntary and confidential process they help two or more people in conflict clarify their issues and goals, communicate about the situation, and try to reach a constructive resolution. The mediators do not make decisions about who is right or wrong or how things should be resolved – all decisions are made by the parties.
