Members of the graduate community should feel welcomed and supported when they are seeking help to resolve conflict.
When you talk with a G2G Peer Advisor or the Manager, Grad CRC, about ways to manage or resolve a specific conflict or concern, our discussion is confidential, subject to certain exceptions. As set out in the Grad CRC Terms of Reference, the exceptions are:
- You give us your express permission to talk with someone outside of the Grad CRC;
- There is a compelling health & safety or emergency reason for disclosing the information;
- We are contacted by the U of T Office of the Ombudsperson to disclose information confidentially on the basis that a concern has been raised with that office; or
- We are legally required to do so.
In other words, we will not share information relating to specific concerns with anyone outside of the Grad CRC, including SGS, your department/Faculty or supervisor, our families, friends, colleagues or any other members of the U of T community. We do collect anonymous data about our discussions in order to identify trends and improve training and services. All aggregate data is reviewed by the Grad CRC to ensure that it is non-identifiable before it is shared with the university community.
Please email the Grad CRC Manager if you have any questions or concerns.
