What to expect during a meeting

The Student Ombuds will assist by listening, identifying policies and resources across campus, working with students to problem-solve, clarify issues, provide conflict resolution, coaching, role-playing and communication strategies. The Student Ombuds can help students:

  • Identify resources
  • Contact appropriate referrals
  • Clarify policies
  • Problem-solve
  • Offer mediation and facilitation
  • Offer training and conflict coaching
  • Provide outreach

Whatever the issue or concern may be, confidentiality is the rule. We hold the identity of our visitors and all communications in strict confidence and will not disclose communications unless given permission to do so, except as required by law, or where, in the judgment of the Ombuds Officers, there appears to be imminent risk of serious harm.
