CMDR works to create a positive path forward for all parties involved in workplace conflict and offers training for the UT community on effective communication, healthy workplace relationships, and conflict resolution skills. Many concerns are resolved through informal conflict resolution, which includes mediation, facilitated group discussions, supervisory skills coaching, and communication coaching. CMDR facilitates the formal Staff Grievance Policy (HOP 5-2430) to provide a fair and efficient process for staff to present and resolve complaints related to their supervisory chain.
