Princeton University is committed to maintaining a diverse community that values the contributions of its members in its pursuit of academic excellence. In any diverse community, it is inevitable that conflict will arise. There are a variety of resources and support mechanisms available at Princeton University to aid individuals in resolving issues and conflicts.
Open communication with others is encouraged as discussion can usually resolve issues at a low level and often leads to a better working environment. If you would like assistance, resources include: representatives in the Office of Human Resources and the Office of the Dean of the Faculty, who are available to assist in resolving workplace issues and conflicts; the Fairness Review Process, a peer review process for handling specific grievances or conflicts between non-union employees and managers; and the Ombuds Office, which provides a neutral, confidential and informal resource where any member of the University community can discuss a complaint, conflict or problem. You may also contact the Director for Equal Opportunity Programs to discuss concerns relating to harassment, discrimination or retaliation, or to file a written complaint.
