Welcome to Conflict Management & Human Rights

The University of Waterloo desires to create an environment that supports, nurtures, and rewards its members on the basis of such relevant factors as work performance and achievement. Discrimination and harassment are not conducive to this environment.

Policy 33

The Conflict Management & Human Rights Office (CMAHRO) acts as a focal point and resource to all members of the university community regarding matters of harassment, discrimination, and other general forms of conflict.
