UMD Ombudsperson Position

The University of Minnesota Duluth is seeking an ombudsperson who is a designated neutral or impartial practitioner whose major function is to provide confidential and informal assistance to UMD faculty and staff.

Serving as a designated neutral, the ombudsperson is neither an advocate for any individual nor the organization, but instead, an advocate for fairness. It is the ombudsperson’s role to listen, understand, coach, inform, strategize, problem solve, refer, mediate and provide upward feedback as appropriate. The ombudsperson’s role is to supplement, rather than replace, the university’s existing resources for conflict resolution.
