About Us

Welcome to the Ombuds Office

The Ombuds Office is an informal and confidential resource designed to help members of the UC Davis, UC Davis Health (UCDH), and UC Agriculture and Natural Resources (UC ANR) communities successfully navigate conflict. Our mission is to provide a safe place for all members of the UC Davis and UC ANR communities to discover pathways for conflict management and problem solving in support of fair and collaborative professional and academic experiences in a diverse and changing world. 

People come to our office for many reasons. Sometimes visitors just want to talk about their issue to someone with a fresh perspective. Some are reluctant to use formal channels. Some just don't know where else to go with their issues. Some have tried other ways to get help but have not found what they need. If you are not sure whether the Ombuds Office can help, please contact us, no matter how big or small your issue. You can contact us as a first step, or as a last resort, or anywhere along the way.
