Conflict is a fact of life but it doesn't have to consume your life. The University of West Georgia has created the University Ombuds Office TO HELP FACULTY, STAFF AND STUDENTS RESOLVE ISSUES OF CONFLICT ON CAMPUS. Trained Ombuds staff offer informal, confidential guidance to visitors to help reach mutually acceptable solutions of disputes in a non-adversarial process.
Patricia Pinkard is the designated Ombuds for staff and Dr. Bruce W. Lyon serves as faculty Ombuds. Either will see both faculty and staff as well as students.
