Ombuds Team Hotline

Ombuds office: CON 4011
Susan Swindells, MBBS
Professor, Internal Medicine
Remember, all consultations informal, confidential and free-of-charge.
The Ombuds Team are impartial, confidential consultants who help UNMC faculty, staff and students resolve conflicts informally as an alternative to filing a formal complaint. The team helps with a wide variety of problems, especially those concerns that are confusing, complicated, upsetting, or not being adequately addressed through regular university channels.
An Ombudsperson can help you by:
- Analyzing a problem and identifying options to solve it
- Identifying and explaining relevant UNMC policies and procedures
- Facilitating communication
- Recommending positive changes in UNMC policies and procedures
Consultations are informal, private and free-of-charge. Ombudspersons have been designated for faculty/employees and students/employees, but you can talk with either one.
For more information, you can call the confidential Ombuds telephone Line at 402-559-2491. Ombuds consultations are available to all UNMC campus locations by phone or ZOOM.
