The Ombudspersons (Ombuds) assist you when you have a conflict or problem with individuals, offices, or policies at the university. They provide informal problem-solving and conflict-resolution services and are advocates for fair processes and fair treatment. The Ombuds help you analyze your situation and identify options for addressing it. Communicating with an Ombuds is confidential and “off the record.” If you wish to make a record, or to make UNO formally aware of a problem, the Ombuds can provide information on how to do so. Exceptions to Ombuds confidentiality occur only when there is an imminent risk of serious harm and no other reasonable option to address it.
For more information or to make an appointment, please go to Ombuds Office website. Ombuds services are free to all UNO students and employees.
