Mediation is a system of informal dispute resolution. It provides those in disagreement the opportunity to gather at the negotiation table and work out a solution with the guidance of a neutral third party. Students choosing the mediation process generally appreciate the opportunity to voice their concerns, be an active participant in shaping an agreement and arriving at a confidential settlement without the time, expense, and stress of the judicial process.
Our Director of Student Legal Services, Rhonda Beassie, is a trained and experienced mediator. We can mediate disputes between:
- Two or more SHSU students,
- SHSU student organizations, or
- Even students and individuals outside the SHSU community.
Mediation is a voluntary process; thus a fundamental requirement is that all parties must agree to participate. If you want more information about mediation or are ready to schedule, please call our office at 936-294-1717.
