The Ombuds Office provides one-on-one meetings for any member of the Gallaudet University community (students, staff, faculty, alumni, families of students, and so forth). The 1:1 meeting is a safe and confidential space where sensitive concerns/conflicts are discussed and clarified. This space is also non-judgemental and informal where we actively listen and collaboratively discuss strategies, options, and resources to address concerns.
