Welcome to the UC Davis Ombuds Office

The UC Davis Ombuds Office is a confidential, independent, impartial, and informal problem-solving and conflict management resource for all members of the UC Davis campus community. 

We invite students, staff, and faculty, with university-related issues and concerns, to visit our office.

Ombuds can assist by listening, clarifying issues, identifying polices and resources, and by providing coaching and communication strategies.

The Ombuds Office is not authorized to accept notice of claims against the University of California Davis.  Discussions with the Ombuds Office does not create a record, nor does it begin a formal process.  The Ombuds Office will keep conversations confidential unless imminent harm or danger is present, or if compelled by a court of law.
