University Ombuds

Confidential, Independent, Neutral, Informal

The William & Mary Ombuds Office serves as an alternate and informal resource for all categories of employees seeking assistance with workplace concerns, including instructional faculty operating in administrative roles. Employees are welcome to meet and talk in confidence about any work-related concerns, no matter how big or small.

If the issue matters to you, it matters.

The Ombuds will listen to your issues and help outline possible courses of action. You can then decide how to move forward - if at all. The services of the Ombuds are free and voluntary as well as confidential and off the record.

You may contact the Ombuds Office:

Appointments are preferred in order to discuss situations in detail and find mutually convenient times. Only relevant information should be left in voice mail or email messages. The confidentiality of email messages cannot be guaranteed.

The Ombuds Office looks forward to working with you toward enhancing your workplace satisfaction.
