Peer Mediation Program
What is the Peer Mediation Program?
GSU’s Peer Mediation is one of the newest programs the University has to offer to students under the administration of the Office of Student Judicial Affairs. The Peer Mediation program is a process where a GSU student, acting as a representative of Student Judicial Affairs, will serve as a mediator, or a neutral third party and assist students and/or student groups in conflict to resolve their dispute amicably. The goal of peer mediation is to help students resolve conflicts before they elevate into a serious matter requiring sanctions. The process is completely voluntary and both parties must agree to mediation before it can take place.
Types of issues mediators monitor include:
- Rumor and gossip disputes
- Relationship difficulties
- Racial and cultural confrontations
- Minor assaults and fighting
- Roommate conflicts
- Student Organization disputes
