Members of the University Ombuds staff are available as a confidential, independent, impartial and informal source for all members of the Brandeis Community including undergraduates and graduate students, faculty, staff, and alumni. In our role as ombuds staff, we support the dignity, well-being, and safety of each visitor by providing a safe space to confidentially talk off the record about difficult situations. We meet personally with you to actively listen to your concerns and discuss options for conflict resolution. We operate outside of official or sanctioned university processes. We provide feedback to University officials on trends in an effort to promote an inclusive community where individuals from all backgrounds and life experiences are heard and valued in our community.
