The Office of the University Ombudsman offers a variety of self-help resources as a first step towards addressing common concerns. Please take a moment to familiarize yourself with all we have to share and check back often for additions to our Collection of Downloadable Self-Help Resources.
These resources include something for everyone. Students with academic concerns will find useful guidance in our Guidelines for Effectively Communication With a Professor Regarding an Issue or Concern. Staff and faculty wanting to advocate for themselves may be interested in Self Advocacy: How to Write an Effective Letter. And we can all benefit from the communication tips offered in Being Heard: Mental and Verbal Strategies for Getting Your Point Across.
In the spirit of open dialogue and discourse, Free Speech and the rights established under the First Amendment to the United States Constitution are frequent topics in our office. Take a look at our links to learn more.
Finally check out the books we have On Our Bookshelf, which any member of the University community may take out on loan. Please call us or stop by if you're interested in borrowing one of the selections from our Ombudsman Office lending library.University Ombudsman
