Welcome to the Office of the Ombuds!

The Office of the Ombuds is a resource available to faculty and staff that seeks to facilitate fair and equitable resolutions to concerns that arise in the workplace.

Who We Are: Meet our staff.

What We Do: Read how we can help you resolve workplace concerns.

What Guides Us: Learn about our guiding principles as set forth by the International Ombuds Association and the origin of the odd term “ombuds.”

As part of Bowdoin’s goal to promote a culture of universal respect and support, our efforts are geared toward improving campus life by managing conflict with employees and building fairness, dignity, equity, and belonging into the experience of all members of the community.
