The Grinnell College Ombuds Office was established to provide an independent, neutral point of view in an informal and confidential environment. The Ombuds will listen and inform, research issues to help generate options, and coach individuals on how to deal with difficult and sensitive situations. As an alternate and informal channel of communication, the Ombuds Office is available to the entire college community — staff, students, faculty, and administrators — to address concerns.

The Ombuds Office continues to offer a full range of services to all. Visitors may schedule telephone or video conference meetings. In-person meetings may also be scheduled by request.

To make an appointment, please call 641-269-9399 or email Chinyere Ukabiala.

Please do not include any confidential information in email messages.
