      The Office of Ombuds Services is designed to serve as a safe, alternate channel for confidential, neutral and informal dispute resolution services. Faculty, lecturers, postdoctoral scholars, staff, students and anyone else with a campus-related concern may use the Office of Ombuds Services to discuss workplace issues, interpersonal conflicts, academic concerns, bureaucratic slow-downs and other problems. Our services are always voluntary and reports do not constitute a formal notice to the university.       

A Safe Place to Talk

You don't have to be having an extreme conflict or problem to come in to talk to the Ombuds. Often issues are easiest to resolve before they have a major impact. We like to say we can be, "Your first step, last resort or anywhere in between."
