Voluntary Alternative Dispute Resolution System

Policy number: 
05.044
Policy description: 

The purpose of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) is to increase faculty, staff, and student options in addressing their University-related disputes and to further the voluntary resolution of problems at the earliest opportunity. However, nothing in this policy shall preclude the Office of Equity and Diversity from investigating allegations of discrimination in accordance with policy 16.004 and policy 16.005. In accordance with state law, the policy also affords a tenured faculty member subject to termination on the basis of post-tenure review, the opportunity for referral of the matter to a non-binding alternative dispute resolution process.
