Harassment? (A Student/Faculty Dispute)
1, Number 2, Mar/April 2000
Mediation Roleplay #2
issue of the REPORT
features a role-play for use in campus mediation training
or inservice sessions. This issue's script, addressing
the challenging and often murky area of sexual harrassment,
was developed by Tom
Cavenagh from North Central College in Naperville,
IL. As to be expected, both the setting and the characters
are purely fictional.
Brown, a junior vocal performance major on scholarship
at Naperville University has filed a complaint alleging
sexual harassment by the professor of his music theory
course, Dr. Mary Brown, who is also his advisor. He has
agreed to try mediation upon recommendation from the sexual
harrassment grievance officer. Dr. Smith, a full professor,
is currently Chair of the Music Department. She has also
agreed to try mediation at the recommendation of the sexual
harrassment grievance officer.
