A Safe Space to Talk

You don't have to be in an extreme conflict or problem to come in to talk. Issues are often 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."

Questions? Would  you like to make an appointment? Please call us at 209-228-4410.

The Ombuds brochure is available in both English and Spanish.

The Office of the Ombuds is designed to serve as a safe, alternative 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 the Ombuds 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.
