Welcome to the Office of the Ombud
We serve the entire University of Washington community by providing a collaborative and confidential environment to discuss your situation, consider options, and develop a plan for the future. We are available to meet at any of the three campuses, Harborview, or the UW Medical Center.

Our mission is to provide high quality, client-focused services for preventing, managing, and resolving conflict at this university. Through active participation in the problem-solving process, clients develop the ability to prevent, manage, and resolve future conflicts.
Each year, the Office of the Ombud publishes a report detailing the work of the office. You can find all of our Annual Reports here.
2016 Annual Report
The 2016 annual report provides an overview of the issues the university community has brought forth and how we have helped faculty, staff, and students resolve challenging situations.
Our office is continually looking for ways to improve our services. We want to heard your thoughts and have created a survey so you can let us know what you think. Any thoughts you provide will be thoroughly reviewed and incorporated by our office moving forward.
