Transition to a Single Ombuds Office for UNM

Not everything that is faced can be changed,
but nothing can be changed until it is faced.

Ombuds/Dispute Resolution Services for Faculty

Beginning fall semester 2023, UNM Ombuds and Dispute Resolution Services for Faculty will be  provided through a consolidated institutional Ombuds office that will jointly serve faculty, staff, and graduate students.  As before, ombuds services will help you think through a workplace problem, identify appropriate campus and outside resources, and resolve issues at the least adversarial and least formal level.  Ombuds services are informal, impartial confidential, and independent. In accordance with UNM Faculty Handbook C290, Ombuds services for faculty comply with the norms and practices of the International Ombuds Association (IOA). We are here for you year round.

Note: With the reorganization, this site will be decommissioned and archived.  In the meantime, pages that are no longer accurate or that are not maintained have been made “private.”  Newsletters, Workshop Archives, and general resources pages remain public until the site is decommissioned.
