Sounds like the Office of the Dean or the Office of the person responsible
for arbitration of disputes between faculty/staff/students. There is a
term for this but I forget. I know my university had such an officer and
I've had occasion to visit that office (grin).

It is an Arabic term and was used in the Islamic Jurisprudence context.

No need to apologize, Geoff.

Dude, we are having a discussion. I am not one of those super-sensitive
people who get offended at everything even imaginary slights. Two adults
can have a discussion without getting offended.

It is just that Islam is highly misunderstood and maligned. It is also
mistaken for other eastern religions.
