Conflict Resolution

The University of Florida is committed to treating all members of the campus community fairly and considerately when it comes to conflict resolution.

A UF CVM’s Conflict Resolution Procedure was formulated to guide graduate students and faculty through conflicts to a fair and appropriate resolution in a timely manner. This is to ensure that you are given adequate opportunity to raise concerns (aside from grades), including, but not limited to, academic issues, lack of best mentor/advisor practices, discrimination, employment problems, scholarly misconduct (e.g., plagiarism) abuse of authority, mistreatment (i.e., academic, financial, verbal, and emotional).

The CVM’s Conflict Resolution Procedure is posted below:

If you believe you have been subjected to mistreatment that cannot be corrected directly with your supervisor, you can initiate an online mistreatment report which is posted below:

If you have any questions, you can reach out to CVM’s Office of Research & Graduate Studies at, T 352 294 4241, or stop by our Office (Veterinary Academic Building, V1-127C).


As part of both the Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences and the Academic Health Center, Veterinary Medicine is dedicated to advancing animal, human and environmental health through teaching, research, extension and patient care.
