Office of the Ombudsman
About the Office of the Ombudsman
Dr. John Waller
The MUSC Ombudsman serves as a confidential, neutral, informal and independent resource initially available to help address faculty members' and postdoctoral trainees' concerns and conflicts. The Ombudsman's Office offers a safe place to discuss problems or issues within the University and to review options for informal resolutions of differences. The primary goal of the Ombudsman is to ensure that faculty and postdoctoral trainees receive fair and equitable treatment.
Communications made to the MUSC Ombudsman do not constitute notice (making a formal complaint) to MUSC. The office does not take a side in a dispute and does not provide legal services or counseling to anyone. However, the Ombudsman may refer individuals to the appropriate place where formal notice to the University can be made.
