The Campus Mediation Service was created in 2000-2001 by an Executive Order (No. 30) of the President of the University of Missouri. It provides an informal, timely way
of resolving disputes, in which the parties work with a mediator
to reach mutually acceptable solutions
. Each campus of the University of Missouri has its own independent Campus Mediation Service, staffed by experienced faculty and staff members who have received professional training in dispute resolution. The campus mediators serve on a volunteer basis.
