Conflict Resolution Resources

If you experience a conflict while participating in your program, these are a few University resources available to support you.

Office of the Ombuds

Mediation Services
The University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) is committed to providing individuals with a safe, neutral process for the resolution of conflict. The Problem Resolution Center (PRC), launched in Fall 1998 as one of the Supportive Work Environment Initiatives, is a resource for all individuals of the UCSF community for mediation and facilitating communication. Collaboration with other UCSF resources has expanded options for conflict resolution and teachings on conflict management.
