The College of Charleston Ombuds Office was established to provide a safe place where all members of the College community can go for anonymous and confidential assistance. The office is independent of the College's formal administrative structure and works to facilitate communication and assist parties in reaching mutually acceptable agreements in order to find fair and equitable resolutions to concerns that arise. The Ombudsperson is a designated neutral or impartial dispute resolution practitioner whose function is to provide confidential and informal assistance to students, faculty, staff, and/or administrators.
The Ombuds Office seeks to resolve issues through informal processes that fosters civility and mutual respect. To discuss possible resolutions, please contact us at 843.953.5580.
