How We Can Help

The ombuds is an accessible, objective, and responsive resource whose door is open to members of the University. Regardless of your concern, our office can help in a variety of ways.

  • We are a comprehensive source of information about the university and can answer or find answers to your questions about how the institution operates, what your rights and responsibilities are, and where to find support.
  • We provide a neutral, safe place in which you can voice your concerns. Sometimes simply expressing yourself without fear of retribution can help alleviate stress and clarify ways forward.
  • We can facilitate mediation between disputing parties, as well as provide suggestions for how you can improve your own conflict resolution or communication skills.
