Conflict Resolution Resources


The Ombuds is a confidential resource available to all faculty, staff, postdocs, students or other members of the Stanford community. Visitors to the Ombuds office are welcome to discuss any concern that is interfering with their academic or work life. The Ombuds will listen without judgment; offer information about policies and procedures, and help individuals identify and evaluate the different options available to address their concerns. The Ombuds Office can also facilitate difficult conversations between those in conflict.


Peacemaking is a form of community building and dispute resolution that specifically focuses on strengthening and healing relationships. This practice can take different forms, community building circles, healing/processing circles, talking circles, or conflict resolution circles. This is a helpful resource for group conversations where there is a need to better understand the other parties or there is a continuing relationship between parties. 

University Resources
