In 1997, the Boulder Faculty Assembly recommended the creation of the Faculty Ombuds Program. Since that time, the Ombuds Office has employed two retired faculty members to serve as Ombuds specifically available to active and retired faculty and those involved in conflict with faculty members. Faculty Ombuds combine mediation and conflict management skills with extensive experience and knowledge of the campus culture. They assist in managing interpersonal disputes, improving collegiality and communication, addressing classroom issues, brainstorming options for career transitions, and addressing questions about university policies/procedures.
