Office of the University Ombuds

The University Ombuds Offers all members of the campus community a central, safe, and easy place to gain support and problem-solving resources.

All members of the campus community can contact the University Ombuds about any issue related to the University as an informal resource. Visitors may talk to the ombuds in confidence about any work-related concern. Campus leaders may also consult with the ombuds in confidence on managing workplace conflict. The Ombuds listen and explores possible courses of action with you. You decide how to move forward — if at all. Our services are free and voluntary as well as confidential and off the record. If another office is better suited to address or resolve the concern, we will advise you of those options. Our fundamental principals and core values include: independence, impartiality, informality, and confidentiality.

The Ombuds looks forward to working with you and would be happy to schedule a time to meet. Please be aware that information you include in emails to our office are not confidential.
