University Ombudsman Office
The university Ombudsman is a confidential resource for all members of the campus community to talk with informally, anytime, about anything. The Ombudsman provides a safe and neutral place for faculty, staff, students, parents and retirees to discuss conflicts, concerns or problems.
The Ombudsman can offer options for resolution; can mediate and conflict, or explain policy and procedures, and is strictly confidential. The Ombudsman is committed to the pursuit of equity and fairness. Anyone can contact the Ombudsman as a safe first step in dealing with a problem, as a last resort, or at any point along the way -- especially if you don’t know what to do, where to go, or who to talk to.
Contact the Ombudsman
I will arrange a confidential meeting at a time and place convenient for you. It is helpful if you make an appointment, but you can drop by the office without an appointment. I can be most effective if I meet with you, but if you prefer, I can work with you over the telephone. I generally do not work through e-mail and discourage you from e-mailing any confidential information.
