The OHSU Ombudsman services are available to all faculty, staff, administrators, students, post-doctoral fellows, trainees and volunteers, offering a safe, confidential place to discuss campus-related issues and explore possibilities for informally addressing concerns.

The Ombudsman will listen and review matters; help identify options; make inquiries and make referrals as appropriate; and/or facilitate resolutions in an impartial manner.

The overarching mission of the Ombudsman is twofold: to ensure that every member of the university community receives equitable and fair treatment, and due process; and to support and facilitate a positive working and learning environment through identification of emerging and immediate trends and risks.
