Main Campus Faculty Ombudsman Home Page

Do you need to talk about a situation at work?

The Main Campus Faculty Ombuds Office is a safe place to share your workplace concerns for all tenure, tenure-line, full-time non-tenure line, and adjunct faculty.

Established by the Provost on the recommendation of the Main Campus Executive Faculty in October 1999, as a safety net for the workplace problems and concerns of all Main Campus faculty members. The office provides an informal, impartial, neutral, and confidential environment where faculty can discuss workplace concerns and disputes and where possible solutions can be mapped out. We do not advocate for any individual point of view, and do not participate in any formal grievance process, but work to promote a fair process for all.
