Conflict Resolution Policy and Advising Guidelines

Created: October 8, 2018

In June, The Graduate School's (TGS) Administrative Board approved a new procedure for graduate students to follow in resolving conflicts with faculty. This procedure has been posted to our website under Dealing with Conflict.

In conjunction with the new procedure, TGS’s Administrative Board also approved new Guidance for Positive Graduate Student and Faculty Adviser Relationships, which outlines the guiding principles intended to support positive mentoring relationships between graduate students and their faculty advisers. These guidelines are an official statement of TGS expectations and may be used at the discretion of programs to guide conversations between students and faculty as they navigate their work together.

Please direct any questions about the new procedure and guidelines to tgsacademicaffairs@northwestern.edu.
