Everyone has conflicts. Life is, in fact, a series of conflicts. But how do you attempt to resolve a conflict that doesn't seem to be resolvable, causes you great stress and upset, and is taking a toll on your personal well-being? Mediation through the Marylhurst Solutions Group could be your answer.

Below is information about mediation and getting free, confidential help with an academic, professional, or personal conflict.

What is mediation?

Mediation is a process in which independent, unbiased mediators (not part of the conflict) work to create a professional, positive, and productive environment in which all the parties can move toward an open dialogue about and possible resolution of their disagreement(s).

What is the Marylhurst University Solutions Group and how can it assist me in resolving my conflict?

The Marylhurst University Solutions Group is a student organization whose mission is to provide free mediation services to individuals to work toward solutions for the conflicts in their lives. The mediators are trained by professionals in the mediation field and the service is operated with the support of the Marylhurst Student Leadership Council.

How does the process work to request mediation help from the Solutions Group?

We have made the process simple. Our online form allows you to submit a request for mediation of your conflict in a quick and completely confidential way. Fill in the information requested on the form and press the "Submit" button. You will receive a response back within four business days. A case coordinator will explore the issues with you, contact the other party(s), and schedule a mediation session if all parties agree to one.
