We don’t compromise when it comes to helping you negotiate
Conflict Resolution@MIT offers confidential* consultations about difficult conversations, difficult people, or ways to handle a dispute or conflict. Mediation is one avenue; there may be other solutions. We also offer trainings and workshops around conflict and dispute resolution including a 32-hour Mediation Basic Skills Workshop.
- Mediation is a completely voluntary and confidential* process that helps two or more people in conflict clarify their issues and goals, communicate about the situation, and try to reach constructive resolution.
- Mediators are peers—members of the MIT community trained in mediation to help the parties work together on the issues that are important to them.
- Mediators do not make decisions about who is right or wrong, or how things should be resolved. All decisions are made by the parties.

* Confidentiality Policy: We keep all conversations in confidence and will only share with the permission of the visitor or party - except in the unusual situation of imminent risk of harm to self or others.
