Introduction to Conflict Resolution Processes

Parties to conflicts are strongly encouraged to exercise their best will and seek to resolve disagreements as amicably or informally as possible. When a student is a party to a conflict, the Office of Student Affairs is available to help reach such informal resolutions. The following processes are available to students, faculty, and staff who need or desire the structure that a formal grievance process provides when less formal resolutions are inappropriate or impossible.

Reporting and Requesting Intervention

The Office of Student Affairs is entrusted with the privilege of developing and stewarding healthy and interdependent community at Amherst College.  Our various offices, departments, and services collaborate with local health and wellness resources in the Pioneer Valley to provide tailored support to students as they encounter academic, interpersonal, or environmental challenges.
