Welcome & About the Office

The Office of the University Ombuds advocates for fundamental fairness, and seeks to promote an education and working climate where individuals are treated with equity, dignity, and respect.

The University Ombuds will act as a neutral, independent, informal, and confidential resource for Santa Clara University faculty and staff and offers a safe place for those who are seeking assistance with questions and concerns affecting their relations with peers or the institution.



The role of the SCU organizational Ombuds is predicated on the SCU Mission, Vision, and fundamental Values.

The Ombuds seeks to foster a sense of community grounded on recognizing our diversity and our common humanity, as a major foundation on which to build compassion, learning, teaching, engagement, commitment, service and dignity.
