Welcome to the Office of the Faculty Ombudsperson

The Ombudsperson is a dispute resolution practitioner whose major function is to provide confidential and informal assistance to the faculty.

The Ombudsperson holds an autonomous position, reporting solely to the President.

The function of the ombudsperson is to provide the faculty and faculty leadership with a resource to assist them in resolution of conflict in its earliest stages. The Ombudsperson is neither an advocate for faculty nor an agent of UTMB. Rather, the Ombudsperson is a resource and an advocate for fair processes. The Ombudsperson remains neutral, considers all sides of a question in an objective, impartial manner, and then assists in conflict resolution.
