Department Concilliators

Faculty and Administrative Mediators

While most of you know whom to talk to and/or where to go with questions or issues, we want to make sure everyone knows that, frequently, the best place to start is in the APAM Department.

When issues concern more personal matters or matters that involve other students or a faculty or staff member, please see one of the following people as they are prepared to help you as first-step faculty/administrative mediators. Sometimes just talking - confidentially - is all that's needed. Further, it's been our experience that when we know about problems early on, we can resolve them more easily - and keep an eye on them, and/or direct you to someone else.
