  1. Tom, welcome to the World Directory of ADR Blogs. I have a couple of questions. In your role as an organizational Ombuds, what do you do that differs from a mediator, and how? Also, as indicated in your brochure, you are "responsible" to the University President. Given that, how can you maintain neutrality?

    I ask because I'm interested in understanding how I can best provide services to my potential clients as a mediator. Thanks,
