Where can you get advice about a concern without revealing it to a program/mentor/colleague? Sometimes you may have a challenging dilemma: “should I report what just happened and to whom? Or am I making a scene over nothing?” Talk to our Ombudsperson! Except for situations that may cause harm to you or others your issue is confidential and not reported to anyone.
What is an Ombudsperson? An Ombudsperson is an individual to whom students may speak regarding a problem, conflict or concern. The office is neutral and independent of the administration. It provides a private sounding board and source of assistance to help students find the right resources, and figure out next steps in addressing an academic or nonacademic concern.
