Ombuds Office

The Ombuds Office offers a safe place for any member of the Columbia community to discuss workplace issues, interpersonal conflict, academic concerns, bureaucratic runarounds, and many other problems. You can speak freely to us because we promise to keep our discussions confidential, and we are not part of any formal University process. We don't take sides in disputes and operate independently of the Columbia administration, reporting only to the president.

Get in touch with us as a first step or a last resort—or at any point along the way. Together we will explore options, develop strategies, review policies and manage expectations. We will listen to your concerns, help you evaluate your situation, and assist you in making plans to resolve conflict, eliminate confusion and restore balance.

You control the process and decide when - or even whether - to take action.
