An Advisor is a person chosen by a party or appointed by the institution to accompany the party to meetings related to the resolution process, to advise the party on that process, and to conduct cross-examination for the party at the hearing, if any. Possible Advisors include a list of trained faculty and staff. Advisors serve voluntarily and may or may not agree to serve when asked. Complainants may also select an Advisor of their choice outside of this list.
