Principles

The office of the Ombuds is a neutral party, that initially will offer services to faculty and post-doctoral trainees. The Ombuds will work with individuals or groups to assist in determining options for resolving conflicts or concerns and also, when needed, bring concerns to the attention of the organization for resolution.

The Office seeks to operate in harmony with ethical principles established by the International Ombuds Association.

Key principles are:

  • Independence
  • Impartiality
  • Confidentiality
  • Informality
