The Ombudsperson serves as a consultant to faculty, staff, and graduate students to help them make empowered decisions while addressing conflicts and barriers related to experiences at the University of Tennessee.

Faculty or staff persons may call their ombudsperson and leave a confidential message on voicemail if there is no answer. Only a name and contact information are needed. Additional information may be given when the call is returned.

You may also contact your ombudsperson via email. However, anyone contacting via email about ombuds services or concerns should provide minimal information, keeping in mind that emails are not confidential.
