At the most fundamental level, an ombudsperson is one who assists individuals and groups in the resolution of conflicts or concerns.
The university ombudsperson functions independently of all administrative and academic offices to ensure OU community members across all three campuses have an impartial, confidential space to express concerns, seek guidance and constructively resolve conflicts.
Graduate Assistants and their household members are eligible for the OU Employee Assistance Program. Services are free and confidential.
Some of the available services include:
If a person is an immediate threat to themselves or someone else or is incapable of caring for themselves, call (405) 271-4911.
If the behavior of a student, faculty, or staff member raises concerns about their safety or the safety of others, you can contact the OUHSC Behavioral Intervention Team (BIT). The OUHSC Behavioral Intervention Team (BIT) is focused on providing caring, preventive, early intervention to promote the safety and well-being of individuals on campus and the HSC campus community.
There are several ways to report a concern to the HSC Behavioral Intervention Team:
