Ombuds Office for Faculty and Staff
223-225 Lowell Center
610 Langdon Street
Madison, WI 53703
The Ombuds Program serves as an informal, impartial, confidential, and independent resource for faculty and staff (including student employees of the university) at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. An ombuds will listen to your concerns, clarify procedures, discuss options, and, if requested and appropriate, serve as an intermediary in attempting to resolve disputes. Ombuds work independently from University administrative offices; discussing a matter with an ombuds is confidential and does not constitute notice to the University.
Four emeritus faculty and staff work part time and share the duties of the office. First contact should be made by calling the Ombuds Office (265-9992). We take turns checking the phone and one of us will call you back within a day. You may also call or email any of us, but he/she may be unavailable when you call since all four of us are retired and are sometimes out of town.
