Ombuds Services

The primary role of Graduate Student Ombuds Services is to provide a safe, confidential, informal setting where students can talk about concerns, identify potential solutions, and plan a path forward. Students bring a variety of concerns to the Ombuds Officer, from how to have a difficult conversation with a faculty mentor, to navigating the complexities of a research group, to identifying informal and formal grievance procedures.
