Students, faculty, and staff are invited to use UNO’s Ombuds Services during their time at the university.
Ombuds Services is a confidential resource for any member of the campus community with a university-related problem or conflict. The Ombuds assist with informal conflict resolution and problem-solving, navigating difficult situations, and advocacy for fair processes and fair treatment.

- Offer information about UNO’s policies and procedures
- Discuss and clarify your issues and concerns
- Help identify and evaluate options to address your concerns
- Coach you on how to deal with a conflict or problem yourself
- Mediate a dispute or facilitate communication among people in conflict
