Center for Mediation


The Center for Mediation, as part of the Office of Public Stewardship, provides interest based and collaborative services available to all residential and adjunct faculty, full and part-time staff, administration, departments, and cross-functional work teams in an effort to support collegial and respectful working environments. 

The interest based approach encourages participants to work together with a mediator or facilitator (“neutral”) to manage conflict, engage in joint problem-solving, and to make decisions collaboratively.  

Mediation and facilitation services are:

  • Confidential
  • Solution focused
  • Informal

Services may be requested voluntarily or offered as part of formal resolution processes.  Any MCCCD staff, residential faculty, adjunct faculty or administrative personnel who wish to make a request for Mediation and Facilitation services or to obtain further information, please email the Mediation Center at
