Ombuds Program

The Faculty/Staff Ombuds Program provides a secure, informal place where all FSU Faculty and Staff are welcome to come and talk in confidence about matters or concerns that impact their employment at FSU. The Ombuds Program promotes early intervention.

The Faculty/Staff Ombuds Program accomplishes this by providing a neutral source of free information and guidance that remains confidential to the extent permitted by law and policy. The Faculty/Staff Ombuds Program supports effective communication, cooperation, equity, and civility in the FSU work environment through coaching individuals, facilitating communication between persons and departments, providing information on University policy, and, where needed, recommending appropriate institutional action or change. Our Program does not replace the University's formal complaint channels or provide legal advice.
