We help you to communicate

At the beginning of your call, the ombuds officer will speak to the principles of our office and then it’s up to you to share your issue/concern, make an inquiry about policy or resource, and discuss next steps. This is your time to discuss the issue or problem and work through possible solutions. What happens next is up to you.
