Mediation is a problem-solving process facilitated by an impartial third person, who is called the mediator. The role of the mediator is to help students identify issues that are important to each of them, communicate their ideas, explore options, reduce misunderstanding, discover areas of compromise, negotiate differences, and optimally come to mutually agreeable solutions.

Mediation allows the participants to design solutions that are best for their situations.

The mediators are members of the Dean of Students Office who have completed state-approved mediation training and have experience in mediating student disputes in a variety of contexts. They are committed to providing high quality service to all Barry students in dispute.
