Conflicts in any work environment are inevitable. Difficulties in such areas as communication, working styles and departmental policies often lead to disagreements among co-workers, most of which are resolved by the parties involved without assistance.
Faculty, staff and students at the University of West Georgia are encouraged to seek resolution of any conflict through such informal discussion. If you are unable to reach a solution in this way, your next best alternative is to turn to the Ombuds Office. If this office is unable to resolve your issue, then the mediation services of the Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) Program can help you work toward a resolution.
