Dartmouth is currently conducting a search for an ombudsperson. While the College is without someone in that position, faculty and staff may seek assistance in several ways.

They may contact their department’s human resources consultant; speak to someone in the Faculty/Employee Assistance Program (known as FEAP); or access the compliance and ethics hotline. The hotline is a telephone and web-based confidential reporting tool run by an outside company called EthicsPoint. The hotline may be reached at 888-497-0516 and at www.dartmouth.ethicspoint.com.

The Dartmouth Ombuds Office provides confidential and informal assistance in the resolution of college-related concerns, especially those not being addressed adequately through normal procedures. The ombudsperson 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 ombudsperson 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.

The ombuds office is not an office of notice for reporting of harassment or discriminatory conduct under Title IX or the Cleary Act. The office is located in room 206 of the Church of Christ building. The office is a College function and has no affiliation with the church.
