In response to Coronavirus/COVID-19, Brandeis has moved all classes and most meetings online. See the latest information and updates. Our team is here to support the Brandeis community. If you would like to speak with one of our staff members, please reach out to Don Greenstein, Ombuds, at 


Members of the University Ombuds staff are available as a confidential, independent, impartial, and informal resource 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 about difficult situations. We meet personally with you to actively listen to your concerns and discuss options and resources for conflict resolution. We operate outside of official or sanctioned university grievance or notification processes. We also provide feedback on trends in order to support Brandeis' work to create an inclusive community where individuals from all backgrounds and life experiences are heard and valued.
