Mission Statement

The Michigan Tech Ombuds Office is a place where members of the University community can go for informal conflict mediation services. In order to afford clients the greatest freedom in using its services, the office is independent, neutral, and confidential.

What We Do

The Ombuds Office provides informal mediation services for members of the Michigan Tech academic community. We provide services to help individuals resolve their concerns fairly and informally. Informal conflict resolution services are intended to be employed prior to initiating any formal grievance procedures. We do not handle issues specifically addressed by collective bargaining agreements for employees who are represented by labor unions.
