The Office of Ombuds


The Ombuds Office provides assistance in resolving problems and conflicts. It is an independent, impartial, informal, and confidential resource available to all members of the Dixie State University (DSU) community including faculty, staff and students. In the spirit of these important functions, this Charter Agreement defines the privileges and responsibilities of the Ombuds Office.

Chartered in Summer 2013 at the recommendation of then DSU President Stephen Nadauld, the Office is staffed by one or more professionally trained Ombuds who act as the University’s designated third-party neutral, and who practice in accordance to accepted professional standards set by the International Ombudsman Association.
