Office of the Ombuds: Conflict Management and Dispute Resolution

The Office of the Ombuds serves as a confidential, informal, impartial and independent resource to members of the Penn community who are experiencing difficulty, conflict, or confusion in their work, studies, or life at the University more broadly. The Office serves staff, faculty, and students, and offers an accessible and safe place to resolve differences, explore matters of concern, get information, improve communication, and identify options. Individuals seeking assistance are encouraged to contact the Office of the Ombuds at the earliest stages of a problem so that assistance can be provided before the matter escalates.
