Welcome to Student Conduct & Conflict Resolution Services
American University is committed to developing thoughtful, responsible people, and Student Conduct & Conflict Resolution Services plays an integral role in that commitment, promoting a high standard of ethics for the entire AU community.
Our office consists of two distinct programs, each designed to affirm our university values and serve the whole campus body. If you’re involved with an alleged violation of the Student Conduct Code, our Student Conduct staff will facilitate administrative and organizational support to resolve the issue. Also, our website allows any member of the AU community to file a complaint and find all the necessary Student Conduct forms and applications.
Our office’s second program, Conflict Resolution Services, exists to help any AU community member work through and resolve conflict. We recognize that – whether big or small – conflict is a part of life, and it provides an occasion for growth. Our trained mediators offer free mediation and conflict coaching services in a confidential environment, where discussion and mutual respect promote peaceful resolution. In addition, our volunteer opportunities advance students to become mediators themselves through training and leadership positions. If you could benefit from our conflict resolution services, feel free to call, email, or visit our office.
As members of the AU community, how we conduct ourselves makes a difference. Whether we are experiencing a conflict or choosing how we spend time outside of class, decisions we make speak to who we are and what we value. It is our hope that every decision and every response will be marked with civility and integrity.
