USC Office of the Ombuds
Confidential. Impartial. Informal. Independent.
Welcome to the USC Office of the Ombuds
The Ombuds Office is a safe and confidential place to share your USC-related issues with a University Ombuds. We will work with you to explore options or paths to manage your concern.
The USC Office of the Ombuds remains available to the USC community during this period of working and learning remotely. Please call or email the UPC or HSC Ombuds to request a phone or virtual appointment. We will also host virtual Ombuds Open House drop-in Zoom sessions where we will share conflict resolution and communication tips for issues that may arise as we work and learn remotely. Everyone from the USC Community is welcome to participate, Wednesdays (beginning April 1) 12:00-12:30 p.m., Zoom:https://uscprovost.zoom.us/j/584636373
The confidentiality of electronic communication cannot always be guaranteed. If you are concerned about protecting your confidentiality, we suggest that you contact our office by telephone.
The Office of the Ombuds is not an office of notice for the University and cannot receive formal complaints on behalf of USC.
