Conflict Resolution

Class size and equipment requirements will be determining factors in disputes involving for credit courses. The Academic Scheduling Center will make every attempt to mediate room conflicts and develop a solution. However, in the event that conflicts cannot be resolved at this level, intervention may be necessary by the University Registrar, Deans, and/or Provost's Office.

Instructors are responsible for sharing the fifteen minute between classes. Every effort should be made to vacate the classroom in a timely way, allowing the following instructor to set-up and prepare, as well as allow the finishing instructor to make final remarks and gather materials. Students should be encouraged to meet with the instructor during office hours rather than during this time. Should conflicts develop, instructors should first attempt to resolve the concerns between themselves. If the result is unsatisfactory, conflicts must be mediated by department chairs.
