About

The Faculty Ombuds Officer serves as an independent, confidential, and impartial resource for faculty.  The primary responsibility of the ombuds officer is to raise and clarify issues and concerns, identify opinions, and request assistance to informally resolve workplace conflicts. In cases where informal resolution efforts fail or are not advisable, the ombuds officer will counsel faculty of their options for formal action and will direct them to the appropriate university rules, resources, and offices.
