Informal, Neutral, Confident Problem Resolution

Serving Students, Faculty, Staff and Administration

The Ombudsperson

Offers students and employees informal assistance in resolving disputes or confusion in a neutral environment where they can openly discuss individual or broader issues without having those concerns shared without their consent.

What We can Do To Help You:

  • Listen, without being judgmental
  • Ensure confidentiality unless given consent
  • Provide information & referrals
  • Facilitate communication
  • Help you develop options for resolving problems or conflicts in the workplace
  • Offer a neutral perspective
  • Prevent negative conflict through early intervention

What We cannot do:

  • Advocate for the individual, nor the University
  • Assist if you are already engaged in a formal grievance process or are represented by legal counsel
  • Keep records
