The Judicial Process
Interpersonal problems occur at Reed. They happen at all schools, but here we don’t have lots of rules and enforcement mechanisms to control people’s behavior; we have the Honor Principle.
In a system based on self-governance, you are the enforcement mechanism: it is your responsibility, as a member of the Reed community, both to think about how your actions affect others and to hold other people accountable for their actions. So, when someone has pissed you off, made you uncomfortable, or infringed on your rights in some way, what should you do?

Note that faculty and staff have different venues through which honor issues are resolved if mediation does not work.
