The Ombuds Office is a confidential, independent resource authorized to informally address faculty, student, and staff concerns from a neutral position, ultimately facilitating the process of conflict resolution. All interactions with the Ombuds are strictly confidential except cases where there is consent by complainant; imminent harm to the complainant, others or University; or a legal concern. The Ombuds does not operate as an advocate for individuals or the University, but as an advocate for fairness of outcomes. The Ombuds is an independent entity and reports directly to the Office of the Provost. The Ombuds works informally to achieve fair and equitable solutions to concerns; we are not licensed attorneys.
