About Us

University of Cincinnati Welcome sign


We assist the UC community with any university-related dispute or concern.

The Ombuds office is a safe, accessible, and voluntary resource. We deal with the widest range of concerns and conflicts within the university, exploring and analyzing all options.

We listen to your concern without judgement. Visitors to our office choose their own path of resolution.

The ombuds office is not an agent of notice for the university except for cases of sexual assault and harsassment when we have a duty to report under federal and state law. The office keeps no case related records. The ombuds office is a part of the Office of the Vice President for Student Affairs.
