Some examples of the type of concerns received by the Ombuds Office include but are not limited to:

  • Interpersonal conflicts

When to contact the Ombuds? When you have a problem and don't where to go, or when you know where to take your problem but are having difficulty getting there.

Early is better, any time is fine!
