Dispute Resolution/ Discrimination and Harassment Complaints

The ODRSVS was designed to promote a study and workplace culture that is supportive of professional and personal development and free from discrimination and harassment. We are all responsible for helping to create an environment that values mutual respect and understanding for the dignity and rights of others. It is in this environment that work and learning can best be accomplished.

We are responsible for:
  • Providing facilitation of the resolution of discrimination and harassment complaints.
  • Collaborating with individuals and groups seeking to improve difficult relationships.
  • Providing support and coaching for those wishing to confidentially address conflict.
  • Educating the university community about workplace conflicts (including harassment, discrimination and bullying) and strategies for effective conflict resolution.
  • Conducting awareness programs, workshops and customized training sessions to meet the dispute resolution needs of the university community.
