An Ombuds provides confidential and informal assistance in the resolution of college-related concerns, especially those not being addressed adequately through normal procedures. The ombuds is an independent party who attempts to consider all sides of an issue in an impartial and objective manner. She or he cannot impose solutions but can help identify options and strategies for resolution.
The Ombuds is a confidential, independent, informal and neutral resource for non-union staff. Union members should consult with shop stewards, Human Resources, Equal Opportunity, and Affirmative Action, depending on the nature of the issue. Faculty should consult with their chairs, associate deans and deans.
If you would like to schedule an appointment to meet with the Ombudsperson, Sean Nolon, you may send an email to Sean.Nolon@Dartmouth.edu or you may call the office at (603) 646-9872. When necessary, appointments can be scheduled at an alternative, off-site location. The office is located in room 206 of the Church of Christ.
Please be mindful that email should not be considered confidential communication. To protect confidentiality of the Ombuds’ office, communication with the office does not constitute notice to the College about the existence of a problem.
The Ombuds office is not an office of notice for reporting of harassment or discriminatory conduct under Title IX or the Cleary Act.
