The ombuds serve as a consultant to graduate students, staff, faculty, and university leaders to help them make empowered decisions while addressing barriers and conflicts related to experiences at the university.

The ombuds can help you engage in constructive problem-solving that instill respect, civility, and justice. When you talk with the ombuds, you can count on feeling safe and be heard. Our staff welcome office visitors who want to talk about their situation to identify whether there is a problem, brainstorm ideas for tackling the problem, and design solutions to the problem. We provide educational programming to individuals and organizational units to overcome challenges. A report of trends among visitor experiences is provided to the campus community to identify systemic issues that inform future development of policies, procedures, and practices.
