Additional Information

Faculty Ombuds

The Faculty Ombuds receives faculty complaints, concerns, and questions about alleged acts, omissions, improprieties, and broader problems, and works to ensure a fair, equitable, and expeditious resolution. The Ombuds may make an informal inquiry, request relevant documentation, review matters received, offer options for resolution, make referrals, and mediate disputes independently and impartially. In addition, the Ombuds serve as a resource for information, communication, and referrals, and makes recommendations for constructive change when university policies or procedures generate conflicts or concerns. The Ombuds adheres to professional standards of practice established by the International Ombudsman Association.
