University of Northern Colorado Considers an Ombuds Program

A committee looking at campus climate issues at the public university in Greeley has recommended the creation of a Organizational Ombuds program. Last month, the UNC Climate Working Group identified a range of recommendations from surveys of the community, including: 

Conflict Resolution Process and Professional Development 
  • Provide staff/faculty/administration/executive staff with mediation/conflict training
  • Create a conflict resolution process that provides positive inclusive conversations
  • Create a position for mediational/organizational ombuds 
  • Address how conflict is a significant source of low morale 
  • Address the perception that UNC operates in a “culture of fear” and retaliation at all levels
Next steps have not been announced.
