The Ombuds offices serve as an informal and impartial resource available to all faculty, staff, students or other members of the UTSA community. Visitors to the Ombuds offices are welcome to discuss any concern that is interfering with their academic or work life. 

The Ombuds offices are also a safe place to confidentially raise concerns or make recommendations for systems-level change. All meetings are kept confidential, with some exceptions, and individuals remain in control of how they wish to address their concerns. UTSA has separate Ombuds offices dedicated to students and employees (staff, faculty, and student employees).
