The Office of the Ombuds is not authorized to accept notice of allegations of violations of law or other formal complaints. No employee or other University constituent may compel the Office of the Ombuds to disclose information. By electing to utilize the voluntary services offered by the Office of the Ombuds, visitors agree to abide by its confidentiality standard of practice and terms of use, including never seeking to compel the Office of the Ombuds to disclose any information received as part of providing ombuds services in any other forum, including a formal grievance or lawsuit.

Confidentiality cannot be promised in matters relating to threats to public safety, child abuse, if there is an imminent risk of serious harm, if the matter is required to be reported pursuant to Title IX regulations, as otherwise may be required by law or if compelled by a court of law.

Speaking with an Ombuds does not constitute legal notice to the University of any problem, concern or complaint. You must pursue alternative complaint avenues if you wish to obligate the University to respond in any way. The Ombuds has no duty or responsibility to report incidents to any person or authority, other than as described above.
