Often when questions about academic freedom, or a student's or professor's constitutional rights, arise in an academic environment, tempers and emotions quickly escalate—rendering it nearly impossible for a member of the community to make an objective evaluation of the situation and to decide how to proceed.

CO-STAR's experts have had vast experience in dealing with the complex issues that can complicate matters in such volatile settings. As is always the case, CO-STAR's mediation and arbitration teams are composed of experts with a wide range of backgrounds and experiences that enables them to analyze any situation from numerous viewpoints. Drawing on their knowledge of the law, academics, campus and local politics and the media, our teams will either act as fact finders and arbitrators—gathering all relevant information and rendering an advisory opinion—or as mediators who will work with the affected parties to reach a mutually agreeable solution.

The cost of these services varies, depending on the complexity of the issues and the time needed to reach a decision or resolution. Both flat fee and hourly billing arrangements are available. If you would like more information about these services, contact CO-STAR at info@co-star.org.
