Conflict resolution

MIT Ombuds Office

The MIT Ombuds* Office helps people express concerns, resolve disputes, manage conflicts, and learn more productive ways of communicating. The Ombuds Office serves as an independent, confidential, neutral and informal resource to the diverse MIT community—it is a resource for faculty, staff, students and post-docs. It provides a place for every voice at MIT to be heard and to receive impartial attention without fear of loss of privacy.


Mediation@MIT offers confidential consultations about difficult conversations, difficult people, or ways to handle a dispute or conflict.
