University Intercessor

The goal of the Intercessor is to promote a respectful, inclusive university for all members of the community by resolving disputes, challenging perceptions, and advocating for fairness at the University.  For over 40 years, University Intercessors, appointed by the Provost, have been untangling complex problems and unresolved interpersonal and departmental issues with staff, faculty and students who call on them for help. 

From their University-wide activities, Intercessors gain insights about problems that would best be addressed at policy or systems levels, and may identify, influence, or recommend policy or systems changes to resolve them.  They actively collaborate with others to provide training, programs, and educational interventions aimed at preventing harassment and discrimination and fostering respect and inclusion.
