Office of the Ombuds
Group Work and Facilitation
The Ombuds is a trained professional with knowledge of group processes. Groups can benefit from having the Ombudsperson facilitate groups to help them achieve desired goals, such as climate issues, the process of change, transition, and growth, improving communication between members, and decisions that affect the department or unit. The Ombudsperson will work with all types of groups to help improve group functioning, as well as help address local and systemic concerns that impair group health and well-being.
