Center for Mediation & Conflict Resolution

Interpersonal conflicts are inevitable in any work or educational setting. At UMBC, strategies and tools to resolve them include formal grievance procedures, formal and ad hoc complaint investigations, mediation, counseling, coaching and, when appropriate, sanctions. However, early intervention can often avert both unnecessary suffering and workplace disruption. With a grant from the Maryland Mediation and Conflict Resolution Office (MACRO), the UMBC Center for Mediation and Conflict Resolution was established to provide an alternative first-step response to interpersonal conflict.
