Office of Human Rights and Conflict Management

Your Path to Support

As a Laurier student you should expect to receive, and contribute to, the kind of supportive environment that leads to personal wellbeing and a positive experience for all.

The Human Rights and Conflict Management Office was designed to create pathways for you to access multi-partial and confidential supports and services.

Our office helps Laurier students who have experienced harassment, discrimination, bullying, a toxic work or learning environment, significant interpersonal conflict, or a misapplication of university policy. We also support students who have experienced gendered and sexual violence on or off campus, or before coming to Laurier.

As a multi-partial body serving all members and campuses within the Laurier community, the OHRCM will assist with

  • facilitating the resolution of harassment and discrimination complaints;
  • improving difficult relationships through collaboration with individuals and groups;
  • providing a confidential forum to discuss conflict and receive coaching and support;
  • educating the University community about workplace conflict and strategies for effective resolution; and
  • offering awareness programs, workshops and customized training sessions on healthy and effective conflict resolution.

Our office provides three distinct avenues to find the help you need.
