The UNMC Ombudspersons are impartial, confidential consultants who help faculty, staff and students to solve work and school-related problems and conflicts through impartial, confidential consultations. The Ombuds can help with a wide variety of issues, especially those concerns that are confusing, complicated, upsetting, or have not been adequately addressed through other university channels.

Ombudsperson services include:

Consultations are informal, confidential, and free-of-charge. The Ombuds Program is an impartial, off-the-record, behind-the-scenes resource, but is not the place to file or document formal complaints against the University.

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 telephone or ZOOM.
