What is an Ombudsman?

The ombudsmen are an informal, neutral, confidential resource for new and continuing graduate students to raise questions or concerns about any aspect of their graduate experience.

Examples of concerns include adjusting to graduate school, relationships with major professors, conditions associated with graduate staff appointments, academic and funding difficulties, or any issue elated to their graduate education. We encourage you to keep us in mind if any students in your program might benefit from our services.

Please note, we are happy to provide advice, inform students about University resources, and make referrals, but our office does not file formal complaints or keep formal records of visits. We are unable to formally advocate for students in University matters.
