Everyone will experience conflicts in life, including conflicts at work. However, if these conflicts involve unprofessional conduct or harassment, the student needs to immediately alert others to the problem. The following are presented as guidelines and suggestions:

  • If you experience conflicts with the students you are teaching, discuss the situation immediately with the course instructor, course coordinator, or the laboratory director.
  • For conflicts involving other research group members, consult with your Faculty Advisor; otherwise, approach the Graduate Program Chair or the Department Chair.
  • If a conflict arises with your Research Advisor or with someone outside of your research group, contact the Graduate Program Chair or the Department Chair.
  • If the concern involves discrimination or harassment based on gender or sexual orientation, you can contact any of the individuals mentioned above as well as the UNL Title IX coordinator.
