OHSU Ombuds

The Ombuds role was created to offer a safe and confidential place to speak off-the-record for people from all OHSU roles (faculty, employees, learners and volunteers) and locations (including our regional campus members in Ashland, Monmouth, Klamath Falls and La Grande) who are experiencing problems or conflicts within the institution or that are related to their role within OHSU.

The Ombuds will listen and review matters; help identify options; make inquiries and make referrals as appropriate; and/or facilitate resolutions in an impartial manner.

The overarching mission of the Ombuds is twofold: to ensure that every member of the university community receives equitable and fair treatment, and due process; and to support and facilitate a positive working and learning environment through identification of emerging and immediate trends and risks.
